US International Moth Class

The International Moth is the fastest sailing dinghy in the world. Founded in 1928 by a union of builders in Australia and New Jersey, the class has long embraced a philosophy of open design: the class rules regulate the number of sailors (one), length (11’), width (7’), and sail area (8 m^2), but leave most everything else up to the builder. This flexibility has led to the evolution of today’s Moth, a lightweight foiling dinghy capable of speeds over thirty knots.

Moths are raced worldwide by athletes ranging from “weekend warriors” to top champions from the America’s Cup and Olympic circuit.
