International Moth Worlds 2019: The fastest one person dinghy in the world just got faster
The new Bieker Moth built by Mackay Boats proves to be a lightning fast, high-performing machine. 122 International Moths from 14 nations provided a spectacular scene at the World Championships sailed off the Mounts Bay Sailing Club in Perth Australia at the end of December 2019.
This was the first Moth Worlds that the Mackay Boats built Bieker Moths featured in and what a launching pad for them. Notching up impressive results, these Moths showed a new speed edge. Finishing in the top ten were Kyle Langford (AUS) 2nd, Scott Babbage (NZL) 4th and Mathew Chew (AUS) placed 8th. Twelve Bieker Moths raced at these Worlds.
Congratulations to these sailors and to 2019 World Champion, Tom Slingsby.
