We are pleased to announce that Musto, the world leading technical clothing brand, has once again renewed its longstanding contract with the Musto Skiff Class Association (MSCA) for a further five years.
Ovington Boats holds the exclusive worldwide rights to build and distribute the Musto Skiff boat, and the sponsorship from Musto supports the boat’s funding, activities, and prizes for events. This renewed contract will ensure the MSCA will continue to operate in a professional manner and helps with investments to promote the class.
The MSCA is represented in over 28 countries and after growing rapidly throughout the last 20 years, is now recognised as a World Sailing International Class.
Chris Turner, Managing Director of Ovington Boats, said: “We have a long-established relationship with both the class and Musto, so we are really pleased to see Musto extend their sponsorship. Whilst we, as boat builder sign the contract, the class association will continue to directly benefit from this sponsorship in full to help with promoting the class and to support their increased activities and regatta schedule. Ovington Boats currently has four ‘works’ boats in service within the UK, two at WPNSA, one at Derwent Reservoir, and one in Ireland with 2016 Olympian, Ryan Seaton, which are all helping to open up the class to new sailors. After a difficult year for us all, we hope to see everyone on the water soon!”
Nick Houchin, Head of Marketing at Musto said: “The Musto Skiff is one of our longest standing sponsorship projects and, as we expand our technical inshore clothing lines, it is only growing in importance. Through the Musto Skiff class, we are able to support more people in getting out onto the water and experiencing the thrill of dinghy racing. We look forward to working with both Ovington Boats and the class association in our continued partnership.”
The MSCA is looking forward to this year’s regattas and other events including the 2021 ACO 2021 Musto Skiff World Championships in Lake Garda from 25th September to 2nd October.
