    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    One other thing to factor (with both boats) is additional expenses that you might not normally consider. Insurance is dear for both, and currently not possible for the moths - very difficult to find insurance if at all. You may need to pay for rib support in the beginning (or in the case of some...

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    Waspz doesn't need much more wind than a moth, comes with a large sail that most people use (in my club everyone exclusively uses the large sail except one girl). Three years ago Minorca Sailing might have been the old foils, they were replaced by larger ones in 2018 or 2019 - made a big...

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    Another factor is what people are sailing in your club. I can't imagine sailing either boat alone, and don't think I would have if there hadn't been a good few of us. Again for a few reasons like boat work, set up, rib support etc etc

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    What did you not find impressive about the Waspz?  You will have the opposite in a moth. The Waspz comes with two different sail sizes and can be sailed in far more wind than a Moth. We have a lot of both in my club and the Waspz fleet get far more sailing for a variety of reasons including...

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    Absolutely don't get a moth (especially one for 12k) if you aren't serious about boatwork. It is a constant and intrinsic part of moth sailing.  12k will get you a waspz if you really want to get into sailing a foiling boat, but there will still be work with it.  Have you looked at wing...

    Drysuit material

    Is drysuit material different to oilies material? I presume it must be as I've never had properly waterproof oilskins (except maybe mpx up to a certain point) but then why aren't oilies made from the same material as drysuits? cost?

    Onefly foiler

    To be fair they were only delivered this year. My club has close to ten but they aren't racing yet - obviously it's not quite like jumping out of an oppy into a 4.7
