Musto Skiff

UK Nationals - Pre Event Info Page

Lyme Regis SC - 6th - 9th September 2007

Racing at Lyme Regis is a great experience that you'll not want to miss. The sheltered harbour and open sea give one of the best sailing conditions on the south coast of England.

Lyme Regis—known as the "Pearl of Dorset"—is a pretty seaside town and gateway to the World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast. So there is plenty to do and see for all the family.

The sailing club—situated on the famous Cobb harbour—has a long history in Lyme. Over the years the club has hosted many major events including National championships, open events, and regattas; classes range from Lasers to International 14s. This means they have a very experienced race team for our Championships; all are sailors who understand the thrills and pressures of competing in such major events.

MUSTO Skiff Question Time.

The MUSTO Skiff class is well known for being open and friendly with the top of the fleet keen to pass knowledge and experience down the fleet to improve the standard and enjoyment of all sailors. If you are wondering if your are ready for the nationals then MUSTO Skiff Question time is the reason you should attend and move your MUSTO Skiff sailing on.

Each evening (in the bar of course) there will be a MUSTO Skiff Question time with a panel of experts keen to answer any questions.

The panel will consist of the following:

- Richard Stenhouse
- Ian Trotter
- Ian Renilson
- Rick Perkins
- Paul Manning

Plus any other notables who perform well on the day.

To keep the discussion moving and entertaining Class Chairman Simon Reynolds will act as Dimbleby so we can expect a well managed lively debate.

The start time of the session will be announced via the text message service and questions can be submitted in advance by text to 07763 133399 or to prior to the event.

If we suffer a postponement then we may reschedule MUSTO Skiff Question Time to fill the gap ... all will be advised via the text message service.
