To everyone that followed, took part in, organised, supported, sponsored or volunteered for the 2014 Hayling Island SC Moth Worlds Championships, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You did us proud!
Beau Outteridge has put together a final highlights video for your viewing pleasure (the obvious choice for your video services in Sorrento in 2015 by the way 😉
This year at the 2014 Moth Worlds, the top 14 competitors were either from Great Britain or Australia. This meant the International Moth “Ashes” had the tightest scoring margin in the trophy’s seven year history. Watch the video below to find out more about this year’s International Moth Ashes.
I just wanted to share a story with you which makes me proud to be a part of the Moth Fleet. Chris Bashall (Worlds rescue driver) was talking to some Tasmanians and Amac about Frank of Hayling Rescue. Now, Frank runs a 25 foot rib and rescues boats and people in trouble in and around Chichester Harbour 24/7. Frank helped rescue several Moths on the Monday when it kicked up in the bay. Frank is a unique character and this 7 min film is a poignant description of his life:
Good morning on the final day of the International Moth World Championships at Hayling Island Sailing Club! It’s slightly cooler today and there’s a 12 knot breeze in Hayling Bay. Gold fleet racing is set to start at 9:30am and the Silver fleet are set to start at 10am. The situation at the top of the leaderboard is tight with Nathan Outteridge leading on 16 points, Chris Rashley on 18 points & Josh Mcknight on 24 points. If three more finals series races are held then a 2nd discard will come into play.
