Former Irish Finn helmsman Tim Goodbody from Dun Laoghaire has finished second overall in Mallorca's Nova Beach Park Trophy, sailing a Musto skiff. 

The 2008 Olympian from the Royal Irish Yacht Club, who admits to being 'a little over weight' for the 4.55m metre boat, does not appear to have been slow in the lightweight skiff.

Goodbody was two points off the title, taken by the host club's own Justo Martinez Balaguer, in a ten–boat fleet at Club Nautic Arenal in Mallorca.

The Musto Skiff is a single-handed sailing skiff with a length of 4.55m. It features a trapeze, asymmetrical spinnaker, wings and low hull weight.

Never the one to miss an opportunity to try out a new dinghy or race course, in 2016, Goodbody Jnr completed the Round Antigua race covering the course of just over 50nm in a Laser dinghy in a time of 10 hours and 48 minutes as reported at the time here.
