In Topic: Looking for advice on 2nd hand Moth (Bladerider FX)

If you just want to fly, and have fun you don't need a mach 2. You just need a boat that is being sailed and well maintained. Be aware that with any Bladerider you MUST regularly inspect and replace the flap hinge if necessary or it WILL fail. That is not a big deal. You just need to be proactive about it.

The AC moth sailors were all mostly olympic sailors first and moth sailors second. Nathan, Goobs, Tom Slingsby, Matt Belcher, Pete Burling and Chris Draper were all seasoned olympic campaigners before they started moth sailing.

 

Whilst I am sure we all wish that moth sailing was the path to the AC, it simply isn't. It is being a great sailor with success at the highest levels, i.e. the olympics, that gets you a ride.

 

So with that in mind, they are going down exactly the same route.
