The Musto Skiff Class Captain Gavin Homer says:
The Musto Performance Skiff was designed and developed to produce an elegant yet simple dinghy with blistering performance that is highly enjoyable to sail. Just ask any Musto Performance Skiff owner and they will confirm that the design brief has been achieved. Ovington Boats and Musto Ltd have now established an exciting new class, with up to 19 Nations currently to be seen competing at world events. The boat clocks speeds of over twenty knots, and has an all-up weight of just 80 kg for a length of 4.55m. (Bare hull weight 44kg). Since Ian Renilson first introduced the class to Dalgety Bay in 2003 the class has grown to its current size of 9 boats although members from other clubs regularly visit for training events and the winter series. The sailors at the club have come from a variety of sailing backgrounds from laser sailors to international 14 and 49’er sailors. There are several training days throughout the year for the class and the fleet uses the club yahoo group to organise additional ad hoc training sessions.
