The Musto Skiff Euro Cup this year saw twelve boats entered and was sailed in perfect conditions with our typical sunshine and sea breeze (local embat) of 10-14 knots.

This competitive fleet continues to grow and improve as all members can be seen out in Palma bay training on a weekly basis. The level is increasing year on year, 2018 seeing some new sailors to the fleet with previous Olympic back grounds.

On day one, Richard Sydenham (the Rookie)... was the big surprise of the championship, only having sailed a Musto four times previously he finished the day lying in third place overall.

The second day saw Joan Rossello take advantage of Justo's mistake in the last race, which gave him a win and elevated to the second place overall in the championship. Justo Martinez scored a cool five bullets out of the six races. The real battle was for second and third place. Nano Barcelo took advantage of opportunities on the second day after a disastrous first day, fighting until the last heat with the Harris brothers who were very competitive throughout the championship.

Ronald Konitzer scored well in the legends category, despite an injury that had kept him away from training throughout the winter.

After the competition, the trophies were handed out once again accompanied by a magnificent paella offered by the Club Nàutic S'Arenal.

Thanks to all the sailors who have participated and especially to those who move from Hamburg to participate with us in the Eurocup. We would also like to thank the club for the support it gives us and especially Miguel Alomar (RC) and his team.

Hopefully next year we can repeat and welcome the participation of sailors from other countries who, after the worlds here in Palma last year, already know this is the perfect Musto Skiff sailing venue.
