From Sunday 1st September to Friday, 6 September 2013 the ACO Musto Performance Skiff European Championship took place in the Union Yacht Club Attersee. From Monday to Friday twelve races were sailed on the western shore of Lake Attersee.

After five glorious racing days and twelve races Frithjof from German is the European champion in the Musto Performance Skiff Class. With a race win and two second places at the end he had a total of 45 points on his account. Immediately behind him is the Briton Ben Schooling, only four points in the arrears. Completing the podium the Briton Daniel Henderson. The Slovenian Hector Dylan Tidd, European Champion 2011 in the Musto Performance Skiff Class, finished fourth overall place.

Moritz Zieher(AUT) was brave during the European Championship and has established himself in tenthAs the second youngest participant was 18 -year-old Upper Austrians third of the youth category in which all sailors are under-24s.

With just four points separating the top six, day five's two races were an all or nothing situation for the sailors. With two race wins Hector Dylan Tidd (SLO ) sailed without fault to lift himself up the leader board but the battle royal was going on behind him.

Frithjof Schwerdt (GER ) sailed two solid races to take the title, Jamie Hilton, who led the intermediate standings after ten races, had to bury his hopes in the lead on the second beat of the eleventh races. He chose the wrong side and finished eighth.

In the final race Ben Schooling (GBR) and Daniel Hendersen(GBR) could still both challenge for the title but Frithjof Schwerdt took second in the last race to take the title; followed by Ben and Daniel and second and third overall.

Michael Farthofer , President of UYCAs: 'We are very pleased that we had the International Musto Skiff class invited to host the European Championship 2013. They were all excited, and the Attersee has shown its best side.'

With five different nation ions represented in the top 10 the Musto Skiff is a true international class, attention for the class now shifts to the next major championship which is the World Championships to be held in Perth Australia.
