The 2022 Moth Class World Championship, organized by the Yacht Club Argentino, got off to a slow start waiting for the wind. With 39 participants from 9 countries, the first day of racing had been eagerly anticipated.

The day began with a skippers' meeting, where the plan for the day was laid out. Shortly before noon, the first boat hit the water and was followed by the rest of the fleet. Unfortunately the light wind forced the Race Committee to postpone racing, with the sailors returning to shore to wait for better conditions.

Around 5pm, with renewed hope and about ten knots on the water, the fleet left the shore again to complete the only race of the day.

British 49er Olympic champion, Dylan Fletcher was the winner, followed by Argentinian Massimo Contessi and Italian Francesco Bruni.

After returning from the water, the sailors shared some pastries at the venue. Racing continues on Wednesday.
