2011 International Moth World Championships

I had 2 weeks off work early this year to make my way to Lake Macquarie (NSW) to participate in the Moth World titles.

Preparation prior to the event was unfortunately non existent, but the journey was well worth it as I had two whole weeks to learn how to sail the boat and conduct boat prep, which to date has never happened

The regatta was quite windy and with multiple races per day - my lack of sailing over the past 5 years and low level of fitness showed and this did not help any of my race results. I was happy to say the boat held together and as the regatta went on I felt more comfortable with all the systems and controls.

Now that I am back there is a list of new parts to make and refine in order to get the boat to some sort of race pace. I look forward to have a working boat again and spending some time on the water this summer (whats left of it).
