I was there this weekend, a first for me, and it was pretty cool!
On the front page there is the photo of the Lithium moth, which has some really great ideas, but it was nice to see together lots of dinghys I had never touched before.
Did anybody go?
2018 moth worlds are coming soon around Easter time in Bermuda.
Pretty envious to those that are going, that has to be a pretty special place to sail (well expenses to go there make it pretty special as well); entry numbers won't be the same as Garda, but...
Very serious incident for bora

Little help from the moth guys. I want to reinforce a bladerider boom, for a friend's boat.
I think I'Il do a wet layout over the carbon and vaacum bag it.
What amount of fibre? where? all around the boom or just top/bottom?
My first guess would be some unidirectional on top/bottom in...
Foĺlowing from the bladerider hinge thread...
I've been having sone issues of mainfoil ventilation on starboard upwind, when using a lot of bungee tension, so I was wondering what are peoples'ideas about paddle shapes that help reduce wand interference on the mainfoil.

I've finally decided that this summer I'll upgrade from my Bladerider to a current-spec moth. My biggest peculiarity is that I'm quite light, 63-64 kg.
I'm going of course to look for a boat (mach2 or some british design) with small foils. But my biggest doubts are on the rig, since...
Starting with a standard Bladerider X8, I'm doing some small low-cost upgrades, not looking 4 speed, but for a better training platform (currently trying to get some consistency in the gybes, since 50% is not really a good success rate :D ). I'm asking some feedback and advice on...
The euros are starting today in Marsala (Sicily), with an interesting weather (20-30 knots on "scirocco" expected).
Anyone has news on new developments or interesting news?
In the meantime, a couple of days ago Chris Rast posted a pretty insane...
I'm coming from Italy to the windy City next week for a week long holiday, and I'm wondering whether it's a stupid idea to bring my dry suit with me...
