  1. Upwind was a bit boring, I felt like the action was always out of frame, but damn that main is flat! Downwind was absolutely awesome, fun to watch!

    Sea Force One foiler

    Floats kinda look like as they have been inspired by Doug Lord.

    A-Cat Style Rig on foiling Moth

    Homebuilders build the hulls. Most of them build wingbars as well. Some of them foils and only a very few tries to build rigs such as wing masts or solid wings. I'd say, if you don't have an A Cat mast and sail collecting dust, don't bother building a wingmast, do something more useful with your time while building your first moth.

    Judel Vrolijk Pro-25

    Looks awesome! I'm surprised it wasn't originally built with a bowsprit and asymmetric.

    Making upgrades to Bladerider moth

    Speaking of foil upgrades, if I were to change my centerboard case, what kind of shape or clever plastic insert system should I be looking for to maximize future compatibility of second hand foils?
  7. Light air lowriding is still painful after years of sailing the boat. Especially downwind.

    Yet another foiler

    There were similar looking Moths a couple of years back with two mainfoils. This one seems easier to sail than a Waszp and prettier than an UFO. Cool.

    AC45s For Sale

    Apparently this one is going to be sailing without the wing.
  10. I was sad to see the announcement of your mach2 in your blog back then. Well, moth blogging probably would've died anyway unfortunately. Couldn't you just build most of the upgrades for the mach2 yourself, why did you sell it?

    SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    I think they rushed the event a little bit. Pretty obvious that the neither the boats nor the teams were prepared enough. It'll be interesting to compare this to the last event. Wind conditions were pretty fortunate. The boats looked to be making terrible VMG in the lighter stuff. It was so much better for the last two races. The harbor wasn't a particularly spectacular backdrop for the event unfortunately. Nice event overall considering this was only the first four races.

    You're right, time just flies.

    racing a waszp as a moth

    Having watched a Waszp foiling tack it hit me, how much sailing technique and skill has evolved over the years. I believe it was around 5 years ago when moths started tacking on foils. They were not only faster back then but like 20 kilos lighter as well.
