International Moth

Singlehanded, radical development class that has seen some true innovations in sailing. Most moths are now ultra-thin & ultra-light. The latest developments have been giving the Moths hydrofoils and foil wings.

Within a few years the International Moth hull went skinny, grew wings and enjoyed a huge increase in performance. Little wonder that the PY system struggled to keep up!
© David Henshall
Sailing is the lightest of airs is a challenge for the sailors and for the Handicap System; What if there was breeze when the race started? Is determining the PY on COMPLETION of the race really so radical?

Early International Moths were essentially just smaller versions of normally shaped dinghies
© David Henshall
How can a system fairly equate the performance of a boat such as the one featured earlier – the Enterprise, with that of the foiling Moth. Has the range of PYs grown so large as to now be incompatible with fair racing?
