Royal Akarana YC has two demonstrator Musto Performance Skiff (MPS) boats available for competent sailors that would like to have a go.

There is an increasing number of skiffs sailed at RAYC and there are six single handed skiffs that are regularly sailed and raced at the weekends (four MPS and two RS 700).

The class is well supported world wide and the first world championships outside of Europe were held in Australia last year with a fleet of 43 boats.
