International Moth World Championships - Nathan Outteridge wins

'Nathan Outteridge Moth Trophy'    Tom Gruitt / yachtsandyachting.com

2014 International Moth World Championship - Australian Sailing Team’ Olympic Champion Nathan Outteridge (NSW) won the International Moth World Championships at Hayling Island Sailing Club in the UK last night.

Four Australians finished in the top then with Josh Mcknight (NSW) making it onto the podium in third, Scott Babbage (NSW) coming fourth and Tasmanian Rob Gough finishing seventh.

It is the second International Moth World’s title for Outteridge after winning the event in 2011 and adds to Outteridge’s long list of sailing accolades, including his London 2012 Olympic gold medal in the 49er-Skiff together with Iain Jensen (NSW). On top of aiming to defend his Olympic gold medal in Rio 2016 in the 49er class, multitalented Outteridge is also involved in his second America’s Cup campaign as helmsman of Swedish Artemis Racing Team.

After a week of light winds in scorching temperatures, the forecast for the final day was for no wind, but it turned out to be a sparkling day with the best breeze of the week. Four final gold fleet races were held in 10-14 knot winds, leading to very tactical racing.

Outteridge had moved up into the lead on the penultimate day of the regatta and went into the final day of Gold fleet racing with a slight lead over of Britain’s Chris Rashley in second. Posting two fourth places, a second as well as a first in the last race were enough for Outteridge to take home the title at the end of the six-day event and ten races. Outteridge won the last leg by a country mile, which wrapped up his championship in style.

Outteridge said about the week’s racing and last race: 'It's been a tough week with light winds but today we finally got some good breeze and it was actually really fun racing. The wind got a bit soft in that very last race and I actually fell off the foils at the top mark. Then on the final leg, I turned around half-way to see how I was going and no-one was foiling so it was a pretty nice way to finish, to have a really big lead.'

'It’s obviously very pleasing to win the Worlds. Even though I haven’t done a whole lot of training before this event, I believe the training I’ve been doing in this class over the last five years put me in a good position. And I had a very fast boat, which makes a big difference. When you got boat speed it makes your life very easy. Once you have boat speed, you get confidence and then it just rolls from there.'

About his next steps ahead he added: 'It will be back to Olympic 49er sailing for the World Championships in Santander now, but I’m really looking forward to the World’s in Sorrento next year and hopefully we will see as many of this high-calibre fleet as possible come down and do it.'

With Australian Moth Sailors posting strong results throughout the event, the regatta soon became a 'Moth-Ashes' contest between the Brits and the Aussies with Australia winning the overall count.

On Australia retaining the 'Moth-Ashes' bronze medallist Josh Mcknigh, said, 'Well I mean that's really all we come to these events for -- the Moth Ashes. It's a great trophy to have as it puts emphasis on a bit of team spirit among Australia and England....'

Outteridge is heading to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil next for the Olympic Sailing Test event on Guanabara Bay (4-9 August 2014), with the season’s highlight, the ISAF World Sailing Championships in Santander, Spain, following from 12-22 September 2014.

The 2015 International Moth Australian and World Title Championships will be held in Sorrento, Victoria at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club from January 6th to 16th 2015.
