Andy "Turbo" Tarboton has secured the UK Musto Skiff series for 2016 (GBR)
82 boats participate in the 2016 UK Circuit.
After a thrilling season of 9 events, fleet new comer Andy "Turbo" Tarboton has secured the UK Musto Skiff series for 2016. Andy competed in 8 of the 9 events winning 2 of them and has fully embraced the spirit of the Musto Skiff fleet and is always singing the praises of the class. It was a close run finish, not only as a candidate for the "nicest guy in the fleet" but also the series with Dan Kilsby only two points behind in 2nd and UK Chairman Ben Schooling in 3rd.
The fleet is in great shape with 82 boats competing in the series from 32 sailing clubs which is 4 up on last season and the highest turn out of the last 6 years (excluding 2012 - Weymouth Worlds). The Series saw 7 different event winners and over 14 different competitors on the podium showing the depth of talent throughout the fleet. After an exciting and rather chilly end to the 2016 Series we now look forward to the Winter Championship as part of the GJW Direct Sailjuice Winter Series and some more bracing conditions!"
