*** FEATURE CLASS *** International Moth

by

The International Moth is an eleven foot long, high performance, single handed racing dinghy. International Moths are proud to be one of the few development classes left in the world and have very few design rules including no weight limit. The class encourage innovation just as much as they encourage sailing skill, and welcome home boat building and wacky designs, and almost importantly, welcome unconventional people with open arms. 

International Moths are sailed from the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania and can often be seen flying along the river.
