Musto Skiff Worlds
Stokes Bay would like to congratulate the 12 intrepid competitors who experienced a range of testing conditions, culminating in a long last day; whilst enjoying the hospitality of Carnac ,France.
The racers graced the top step a regular basis all week ; with George Hand winning Silver closely followed by Dan Henderson in fourth.
The distance of half a bowsprit from 10th to 19th separated Matt Holden, Dan Kilsby, Mike Palfreman, Ben Schooling, Richard Pelley, and Andy Tarboton.
Andy Rice (22nd) was writing and written about all week, whilst creating informative radio interviews. Paul Molsworth (23),Ed Wilkinson (29) and Andy Gould (31),alongside Steve Wright who graced the front page of Y and Y in fluorescent orange.
The club Racers all agreed that the week was a success and the event would have favoured the much missed Bruce Keen. Well done to Chris Watts and Russ Clark for excellent reports on a well presented training and interpretation in the art of rules and racing.

Dart 18 Nationals
Congratulations to the Club for what has been entitled, 'Was this the best Dart 18 Nationals ever?' beautifully penned in an article for Yachts and Yachting.
The professionally run event onshore and around the race circuit makes all your efforts worthwhile with such unprompted praise.
The truncated 6 race event created Stokes Bay National Champions in David Lloyd and Tori Akhurst, the mainsheet trimmer/strategist and helm's left arm, with visitors Dan Norman and Alysian Markiman taking silver plus bronze going to Dave and Louise Roberts.
Dan and Jenny Kilsby were an outstanding sixth with Andy McQueen (another Musto Skiff sailor) in 10th place.
Well done to the 14 Club racing boats contributing to a fine entry of 59 Darts with some occasionally completely re rigging offshore in 20 knots; especially our very own 'Banksy/Gerald Scarfe artist and apple varietal cognoscenti', Paul Chatfield, who was leisurely, but constantly pushing his port rudder down whilst enjoying winning a race by 20 boat lengths!!
