  • Report by Yoann Justeau

Three day of racing at the France Open Skiff regatta with 44 competitor from six different country. The first day, two races with a wind blowing from 6 to 8 khots. Great performance from Musto Skiff sailor Pierre-Yves Pfirter who came second and third these day.

The second day, the wind was blowing from 8 to 20. We manage to do race four races. The first race was the one the must heavier wind. We have seen lot boats capsize some minor breakage for some boats.

The last day 3 race with a raid between one of island of the lake. The condition were perferct with a wind blowing from 8 to 14 during the day. The raid was still challenging because is was on the axle of wind (Lot of gybes ans tacks).

At the end, nine races were made, the regatta was win by RS 800 sailor Luke and Emma Mc Ewen from Great Britain with same point has the second B14 sailor Alain and François Cadre. The third was another RS800 Gilles Peeters (Ex Musto Skiff Sailor) and Héloise Baize. The Musto Skiff sailors have finish 7 (Pierre-Yves Pfirter SUI), 9 (Yoann Justeau FRA) and 13 (Jan Busch DEU).

Musto at this regatta but it was still challenging with many boat with similar speed (8 RS700, 10 RS800 and 4 B14). We hope to see more Musto skiff next year.

Big thank you to MUSTO for the event prizes and competitor caps.
