    2019 Chandler Macleod Moth worlds

    I'd be interested to see the Mach2.5 going against the top boats. Btw, does the aero wing really provide significant forward thrust that outweights the drag penalty of the relaively bigger wings compared to the more contemporary designs?

    18ft Skiff Cuff Luff

    It sure looks like the same rig. Not surprising that this sort of innovation doesn't not come from Europe in this class, though.

    EUROPEAN WASZP SLALOM

    It was definitely fun to watch live. I was hoping that they would upload the replays in higher quality though.

    WASZP - International Games PERTH

    The drone coverage of the slalom is really good. Reminds me of a mr. Clean video of the '09 moth worlds, that he did from a top of a hill. Cool vantage point.

    Reverso

    Assembled and almost rigged in 3 minutes. Awesome. It takes me longer to get the cover off of my boat and fold it

    ....got stung by the 'WASZP'?..OD foiler...

    Can someone give me the measurements of the main and rudder horizontal foils? New big main foil looks quite a bit bigger. Anyone has the span of that? Thanks
  7. 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.

    Thank you so much guys!

    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?
  13. 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.
