Moth World Championship: Day 2 - It's different sailing day + Video    
Thu, 17 Oct 2013

For the 2013 McConaghy + McDougall International Moth World Championship, light to non-existent breeze skunked the opening day, but Tuesday was a different story.

After several general recalls and abandonments, the breeze filled in at a light-but-sailable six to nine knots of breeze from the East-Northeast, allowing for three races to open the event for the 80-boat fleet.

As Artemis Racing’s helmsman during this summer’s America’s Cup regatta in San Francisco, Australia’s Nathan Outteridge found little time to practice on his beloved Moth compared to many of the racers here at the Hawaii Worlds, but it doesn’t seem to have hurt him in the least; Outteridge won two of three races today, scoring a second place in the other, and leads the fleet by an incredible 12 points after just three races. Southampton, England’s Rob Greenhalgh holds a slim second, just ahead of three US entrants; Brad Funk, George Peet, and Bora Gulari.
