To join the Musto Skiff Gold Club you need to win a race at a World Championship* - simple.

First rule of Gold Club: You must help others to be able to join...

Second rule of Gold Club: You must contribute to the buying of beers to host a drink on the beach during the world championships. Gold Club members will host the party and share their expertise; the Gold Club Member with the highest membership number present will be responsible for organising the beer.

Each member of the Musto Skiff Gold Club will be awarded an exclusive Musto Skiff Gold Club cap.

In the Tour de France only a few people are in contention for the yellow jersey but many riders strive for a stage win; the same is true at the World Championships. Whilst there are always a few contenders for the title others sailors can target race wins.

Just as in the Tour a sprinter can target a flat stage; in a championship a heavyweight may target a windy race or a tactical genius may excel in shifty conditions. The Gold Club seeks to give the appropriate kudos and recognition to a race win as the Tour does for stage winners...

Below is a list of current members, from GBR, GER, AUS, ITA, NED, ESP, SUI & RSA.
