Musto Performance Skiff

2013 Tiger Trophy Bookmark and Share

The 20th Rutland Challenge for the John Merricks Tiger Trophy was run over the weekend of 2nd – 3rd February at Rutland Water.

This annual early season event always attracts huge entries and although the forecast was for cold weather (max. 4 degrees) and a fresh North wind on top 210 dinghies varying from 18ft skiffs to Toppers and split into 2 fleets took to the water on the first day. The Saturday is made up of 4 short races split into fast and slow handicap and the Sunday is a 2 hour pursuit race.

For me it’s difficult to believe that this event is 20 years old, as I can remember John like it was yesterday, but it is fantastic to see young sailors, some of whom weren’t even born when we lost John, taking to this event.

5 Musto Skiffs braved the conditions and were headed by Ben Schooling in 17th position overall and 4th skiff class, which is a great result – congratulations Ben.

Thank you to our classes Andy Rice for continuing to head the SailJuice series http://events.sailracer.org/eventsites/globalwarmup.asp?eventid=51516 , GJW Insurance for their support and Rutland Sailing Club members who voluntarily give up their time to sit out in the cold for a weekend
