The Sponsors




McDougall & McConaghy spent many years working together to develop high performance Moth designs that could be made cost effectively and mass produced, yet capable of winning world championships in a class that has been dominated by highly technical one off designs.

When it became apparent that the demise of the Bladerider Moth was imminent, both McDougall & McConaghy, who had both been instrumental in it’s creation, inevitability got together to design and create the MACH2. It was an immediate success and the rest is history.

The MACH2 dominates the Moth world, in a field of sailing where development never ceases.



Zhik was founded before the Athens Olympics when it was noticed that the sailing apparel markets could do with a spark of innovation. There was clearly scope to bring in technically proficient gear to help athletes win gold. Since then, Zhik has not only achieved this, but combined it with a fresh outlook in styling.

Zhik now sell a brilliant range of products into an international network covering more than 40 countries, in Europe, the Americas and the Asia Pacific.

Moth sailors and Zhik designers have the same philosophy, both being attracted to technical innovation. Zhik has enjoyed working with the top sailors in the Moth class to help design faster wet gear
