Musto Performance Skiff

MUSTO Skiff Europeans on Lake Garda 2002

Fraglia Vela Malcesine, Lake Garda was the venue for the second MUSTO Skiff European Championship with racing held between 20 - 22 September, with a fleet of 25 boats including 12 from the UK. The local microclimate was feeling helpful and gave perfect conditions for skiff racing allowing good racing breezes and a bit of something special to finish up.

Gabriel Wicke kept the mast pointing at the sky taking the title, with Richard Stenhouse and James MacIntosh the runners up. Prizes were generously provided by MUSTO. Congratulations must also go to Kit Stenhouse for retaining the Ladies Title and finishing 12th overall. All agreed that this was a regatta to remember with no one wanting to leave. The afternoon was roasting and this called for a final swim in the lake before returning home.

The skiffs are planning several European events next year, again at Garda, Switzerland and Germany. With the competition and sailing in Garda, the class can only go from strength to strength. With Luca Devoti's enthuasim for the class and the awesome sailing in these superb machines, his ambition of 50 boats at next years Europeans and a following Worlds programme, seems a real reality.
