• Who says you can't sail a foiling Mach2 Moth in waves? Nothing can stop a Mach2. Two metre swells and 25 knots - no worries!
  • These guys just died and went to heaven but why? It's because they are sailing their Mach2s on Lake Garda! What more could you ask for!!
  • Does it get any better than this? I don't think so 30kgs of carbon fibre excitement machine. More fun per kilo than you could possibly imagine.
  • Wanna take a bath??? The Mach2 - almost bulletproof! Built for speed and the odd, high-speed tumble.
  • It's not always entirely about the sailing! Yep, sailing a Mach2 Moth does occasionally have nice side benefits.

Comforting to know that when you attend key regattas there is some support, especially in far away places. Well, when you buy a Mach 2 and attend a world championship, you can be sure that we are there to care for you. At each World Championship Mach2 provide dedicated repair and maintenance facilities, which always get the thumbs up from sailors. What do we mean? Well let's explain. Looking like an Army field hospital we erect our M*A*S*H style workshop in the days before the event. The tarpaulin roof to keep the rain out (its never normally like this!) is carefully rigged and the stout workbench built. The many spares that we bring to keep you all on the water are unpacked and stored close to hand, power tools, fittings, nuts and bolts are all put in the right places. Within a few hours a mobile boat workshop is created which is capable of dealing with the most extreme damage. Read more...

Congratulations to Bora Gulari of the USA on becoming the 2013 International Moth World Champion! This is the second time that Bora has won the title, and he did so in a week of unprecedented light winds, which saw many cancelled races at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. The event however also produced some amazing racing and the bar has once again been set to a higher standard.   A popular champion, Bora kept his nerve to the end, winning a couple of races but as importantly in the tricky conditions, never really having any bad races either. 2011 Moth World Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Nathan Outteridge and 2012 World Champion runner up Scott Babbage, both from Australia finished second and third and must be disappointed that the final day’s racing with four races planned, was finally cancelled due to lack of wind.   Read more...
The Mach2 Webshop We have created a webshop tailored for Mach2 owners: www.kasail.com/mach2/product The webshop is not only is to buy spares: you can see the original configuration of your boat, transfer the ownership and make warranty claims. There is also a section for Bladerider spares, and a selection of Moth specific ropes and fittings. It also has a section with Mach2 support documents. A big thanks to Kohei who has done all the coding and much of the design. Read more...
Moth tramps have come along ways since the early days of Moth sailing. Back in the day it wasn't unusual for fisherman's nets to be used, or in some case chain link fencing! Of course todays tramps provide the rigid working area you need without the risk of getting septicemia from rusty wire. However it seems to us that Moths have been going about two knots faster each year, in particular since the age of foils began in 2004. Top Moth sailors have been focusing on drag more and more, not just from the foils on rig, but the clothes they wear and indeed other areas on the boat.   Read more...
Yes the Mach2 (we call it the 2.2) has got even better. Before we tell you all about it let's just talk about Moth development. It may come as a bit of a surprise for those new to Moth sailing, but Moths have been going for nearly 85 years! Yes that's right, and in the old days, when you needed a new boat every year development was rife! Moth sailors used to emerge from their cellar or garage, blinking in the light, ashen grey and possibly newly single. Still, they were quite possibly clutching the key to the next chapter in Moth evolution. Some of course weren't but they were pioneering times. And with the shiny polished hydrofoiling boats you see now, an onlooker would be forgiven for thinking that the development is quite stable, and compared to those big leaps, has almost stopped.

These technical drawings show how the "in boat" adjustable gearing is assembled and also how how the adjustable wand is rigged. All parts are now available on our online shop including kits with ropes, blacks and grips. Click HERE or email us if you need a log in.     Read more...
roktab heroBWe scoured the world for stocks of Bladerider parts and bought them to one place. Not only do we have stocks of original Bladerider parts, but we have some refurbished parts too. More importantly we have some items that are made to an improved design, or with better material than the original parts. Now you can keep your Bladerider going for more years of enjoyment. Mach2 is our main business, but we believe keeping old Bladeriders in a race ready state will help grow the class. You can now find these parts on our new webstore.   Click HERE or email us if you need a log in.     Read more...
Most of our customers are Mach2 sailors like you and me - dinghy sailors from all over the world who sail as much as they can in the free time they have, and enjoy it immensely! A number of our customers however are well known professional sailing heroes who have won medals, broken records and achieved accolades the world over, and are now choosing the Mach2 as their weapon of choice. You can probably understand how pleased and honoured we are that the world’s best have chosen to sail a Mach2, and we thought you would be curious to know their names. Of course many of these sailors span sailing categories, often from the Olympic Games to the Cup, and part of the problem is - where to start with such a glittering line up? Read more...
roktab heroBProbably the very best skiff sailor on the planet, current Moth and 49er World Champion Nathan Outteridge has this to say about his Mach2 "The Mach 2 is an amazing piece of engineering, I have sailed many boats over the last few years and my Mach2 is by far my favorite boat to sail or should I say fly! With out a doubt this is the future of sailing." Read more...
MACH2.2 RHA EXPLODE-500 After a year of prototyping we have worked out a much better way of controlling your height abovethe waves. This custom titanium / brass system provides lightweight, high strength and low friction- no slip system to prevent jamming and rope tangling to increase ease of use even in the hairiest top mark rounding.          The system is the same length as the current Ride Height Adjuster allowing you to just fit the new system to any existing Mach2. Like the current RHA, it has fine adjustment (0.8mm per turn) keeping the pulley system simple.     Read more...

roktab heroBThe 2012 London Olympics has seen some incredible competition amongst all the sailing classes, with Mach2 sailors dominating. Australian's Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen won Gold at Weymouth in the 49er Class from second place and fellow Mach2 sailor, New Zealander, Peter Burling.  Australian Laser sailor Tom Slingsby won Gold with an impressive regatta, where he had the event all but won coming into the medal race.   Read more...
MACH2.2 GEARING-500   From very early in the development of the Mach2, the intention was to have the gearing at the front of the boat adjustable from the wings. (This is why all Mach2’s have a utility tube.) We wanted to adjust at the front as this also adjusts the angle of the wand due to the offset of the adjuster nut.       This new system not only reduces slop, flex and the possibility of the adjuster screw bending, it also is easily adjustable on the fly from the wings! The low friction.............             Read more...

'It has been something that I really wanted to have a go at. The lure of sailing a flying machine that looks like so much fun to sail upwind and downwind, that offers so many new challenges along with supreme efficiency and performance, has really interested me for quite a while now.   'The opportunity to purchase a Mach2 foiling moth and have a new personal sailing challenge has been an exciting thought and one that I am sure will make me re-think all that I have learnt in the past.     To read the full story  Read more...
