This video has never before seen footage and on the water and interviews with all the top Moth Sailors including, Scott Babbage (18ft Skiff Champ), Nathan Outteridge (AC45 and 49 Champ), Peter Burling (NZ 49er champ), Joe Turner (World No.2 Moth Sailor), AMac (Mach2 Designer) and Rob Gough (Current National Champion) - all explaining their own way of managing the rough conditions that Mornington provided.
