The International Moth is a high-speed, development sailing class, a history of 75 years of continuous innovation has produced carbon fibre super light weight boats capable of sailing over 30 knots on hydrofoils.
Maybe it’s the fun factor, maybe its the fear factor – but you’ll sail a long way to find a class with a more helpful and friendly bunch of sailors.
Built almost entirely out of carbon fibre, the International Moth is the most technically advanced racing dinghy in the world. With an all up weight of around 30 kilograms, the boat is designed and built to fly.
With the introduction of foils to the moth class, gybing and tacking on the foils is the most exhilarating experience on the water once referred to as the holy grail of moth sailing.
Check out the Tech Talks with some of the leading UK sailors explaining about their ‘flying machines’ – David Hivey (Exocet), Dylan Fletcher (Racoon Rocket) and Alister Richardson (Home Build).
