Ever wonder what it feels like to fly like a Moth sailor? Well, wonder no longer.
You’ll often hear us say: foiling is the future. Not only is it pushing the sport in new directions but it’s also pretty darn fun. In recent years, pro sailors turned to the Moth because it helps them become better foilers on the big boats. As a result, Moth sailing, especially racing at the International Moth Worlds, has become incredibly competitive.
In this event, the world’s best sailors, from the world’s best teams, are going one to one against each other. Moth sailing is a development class which means every year there are new innovations, including the sails.
Over the last five years, there have been massive speed advancements, which means if you want to be at the top of the game, you have to enjoy the technical side.
