Introducing the Mach2.3

The third major upgrade in the illustrious life of the Mach2 Moth has been completed and is now shipping.

We've been working hard to make the Mach2 faster, stronger and more reliable, whilst only adding 150 grams to the overall weight.

The M2.3 incorporates production improvements, lessons learned from the Sorrento World Championships and sailor feedback.

This is the best version yet of the our 7 times World Championship winning boat.

2012 World Championship - Campione Del Garda, Italy

 

roktab heroB

The 2012 International Moth World Championship was sailed at one of the most picturesque sailing venues in the world, Campione del Garda.  With one of the largest fleets to ever contest a Moth Championship, there was 117 competitors that came from across the globe.  

Mach2 won it's fourth consecutive World Championship, whilst KA Sail secured it's eighth.  We were very pleased to see 92 of the 117 competitors chose to sail Mach2's at the event, whilst 96 chose to use a sail from the KA range!

Sydney based training partners Scott Babbage and Josh McKnight dominated the series from the beginning of the qualifying series, through to the last race.  After dominating early Babbage looked like he would take the championship win until the penultimate day where light conditions saw some high results.  21 year old McKnight pounced and suprised many to take a well deserved win!  Babbage came second from fellow Australian, Rob Gough.
