2014 Life Members
It is with great pleasure that the international class committee of the Musto Performance Skiff class has voted to present Richard Ekberg with lifetime membership of the class in gratitude for the hard work given to the class.
Without doubt, the development of the class would not have achieved such success without the support of people like Richard.
Richard was the driving force behind the inaugural Australian World Championships at Black Rock Yacht Club in January 2011.
The event was a great success, with 29 overseas visitors and a strong home contingent, Richard and his team managed a memorable and well run championship. I’ve often heard people say that you should be part of the organising team of at least one major championships in your sailing career, but not only has Richard done this, he has also voluntarily managed the import of the Musto Performance Skiff class into Australia.
