Re: Olympic Musto Skiff?

As someone who sailed Lasers before they were Olympic I would say no
The class went from a fun (if you like sitting out) class both on and perhaps more importantly off the water.
Bed at nine pm anyone?

Re: Lightweight/Female Helms - Is it worth it in a Musto Skiff?

Think I may have found part of the issue my Assy halyard was too long so I was having to pull too much slack before the kite started to come down. I,ll try the other suggestions on my next windy sail. :D

Sail repair

where do people get sails repaired? I have a couple of tears in the luff material and I suspect a new luff would be the best solution. The sail rips as I hoist or lower it, I have checked to see if there are any sharp edges in the mast track and feeder but can't see any. Do others have this issue? N...

Re: Lightweight/Female Helms - Is it worth it in a Musto Skiff?

Well I,ve done it! I first posted in 2015 And it,s taken me that long to do the deed and buy a boat. Since then I haven't put on any real weight and I certainly haven't grown any taller. (65kg and 5"4) On the plus side we now have 6 Musto,s at Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club so I get to see how it...
