Flying Moth as excess baggage to Australia . ..
New Zealand's Peter Burling has won the 2013 Australian Moth Championships Regatta held over the last week at the Wangi RSL Sailing Club, north of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia.

Racing in the 15 race series staged over six days, Burling dominated the fleet winning no less than ten of those races. He only finished outside the top six in just one race and concluded the regatta 14 points clear of second place-getter Scott Babbage. Reigning world champion in the Moth Joshua McKnight finished third.

While not a World Championship Regatta the fleet in Wangi, which totalled nearly 70 boats, was entirely world class and included; Joshua McKnight (2012 Moth World Champion, AUS), Tom Slingsby (2012 Olympic Laser Champion, AUS), Nathan Outteridge (2012 Olympic 49er Champion helm, AUS) and Iain Jensen (2012 Olympic 49er Champion crew, AUS) to name a few.

, 2012 Olympic silver medallist in the 49er skiff class is an enthusiast of the exciting foiling Moth class having owned one for a few years, and he successfully combined Moth racing with his Olympic campaigning during his long-term build up to the 2012 London Games.

The 2013 Moth World Championships are on in Hawaii in October.
