Musto Skiff EuroCup Regatta 2011

Musto Skiff EuroCup 2011

Musto Skiff EuroCup 2011 fleet took to the water after the skipper meeting that took place on Saturday at 09:30.

However, the committee who were delayed due to technical reasons, started the first run around 12:00 with approximately 15 knot winds. Some parts of the course weren’t aligned to the wind but didn’t disturb the majority of the Musto sailors (other problems as set up boats were more important). The second run, also a long one, was sailed in weaker and unstable winds.

Sunday:

Unfortunately the committee decided for the wrong basin. So everyone had to endure 2-3h before getting back (thanks of the „Strumwarnung'). Thanks to that storm a little breeze cam up in the Gersauer basin and Roger said to me 'Solangs nöd blitzt (no lightning) blibemer duss (keep on sailing)'. Instead of going ashore like the rest of the boats (470/420/Fireball) some Mustos used the wind to practice. Just on time for the price ceremony everyone was ashore.

It’s a pity that the committee disappointed so many sailors. I hope those learn from it and next year the regattas would be as perfect as the beach, the lake and the weather!
