Mornington has turned on some very challenging conditions for the sailors over the first two days and the forecast for day 3 is no different. I would go as far as to say that I'm not aware of any major regatta in the foiling era of the moth class has seen waves of this nature. As a class the vast majority of it's sailors have become accustomed to sailing in relatively flat water where they can just 'send it!' Do that on Port Phillip Bay in a westerly and you may last 2-3 waves, but you won't get past the 4th without ending up five feet in front of the boat. It has taught the visiting fleet a new way to sail a moth, where they have to stall the boat to survive the large waves and sail aggressively for a safe avenue downwind.
Simon has already got his hands on the results and filled in some of the details so I won't repeat it, except to say that I will post further updates shortly.
We are very fortunate to have Drift Media on board who are the crew who covered the worlds at Belmont, so footage should start coming through VERY soon.
