Events and Ranking
We decided to push the existing regattas by using the national Championships of the countries close to the center of Europe. This year we try a new ranking system with this formula:
((No. of Competitors + 1) – sailed Points / no. of Races) * (100 / No. of Competitors)
That means, an Event with more competitors and/or races is worth a bit more than an event with less competitors and/or races.
The International Moth is a spectacular, highspeed, one person sailing class which is raced around the world. Highly flexible rules encourage innovation.
The class has existed for over 75 years and is always evolving, as designers and sailors innovate together for increased performance. The latest designs are built from 100% carbon fibre and are capable of sailing at over 30 knots on hydrofoils, which keep the boats suspended above the water.
The foiling Moth Class has been attracting more and more high profile sailors wanting to sail this breath-taking boat and to be part of the fun. Sailors like Olympic Champions Freddie Loof and Ian Jensen or Volvo Around the World Race veteran Rob Greenhalgh and America’s Cup sailors Nathan Outteridge and Peter Burling all sail the Moth not only for honing their sailing skills but also to enjoy the effortless high speeds and camaraderie that the moth class provides. These are only a few of the best sailors in the world that are attracted to the moth class. There are many more joining in for the thrill.
