RIP Martin Boatman
- ObituaryIt is with great sadness that the Musto Skiff family has lost one of its own in January 2019.

I have been advised that Paul and Rick wish to step down from their roles within the class association.

The fleet arrived at PMYC to find the forecast was as predicted with strong wind and a large swell breaking on the beach. After some deliberation and waiting for the wind and swell to subside after some small fronts pushed through, we got underway in the late afternoon. Read more >>>
FAT HEAD MAIN : TEST UPDATE 19/11/18
The mainsail shown in the photo in the last report is continuing to be tested, including in Australia. The ongoing testing continues to follow the plans as detailed in the original report

Feedback has been given to Hyde’s. As everyone knows, nothing can be adopted without approval of the class members. Given the current situation, no proposal is likely for at least 12 months and then the vote will not be until at least end 2019, if an acceptable design is found. Read more >>>
