Outteridge wins Moths, news from Etchells, Dragons and Musto Skiffs
Winning the Zhik Moth Worlds on Lake Macquarie Nathan Outteridge proved this week that not only is he freakishly talent but he is very brave. Well done mate and well done to Joe Turner and Scott Babbage, who finished second and third.
Congratulations to all the Moth sailors, especially Wing Pioneer Charlie McKee and to the event organisers and sponsors. Pat Langley and his Zhik team stepped up to the plate!
We will bring you more in depth interviews and analysis from the Moths, especially the Moth Squad next week.
Right now it's party time at Belmont

Victoria's summer weather this week has been decidedly unsummery, for the Musto Skiff Worlds and the Dragon Worlds and the Rex Gorell Prestige Etchells Australian Championships, but this afternoon the sun is out again.
I am writing this from the middle of Corio Bay from the Royal Geelong Yacht Club Committee Boat.
Right now the PRO Greg Sinclair is desperately trying to get a sixth Etchells race in, while back at the Yacht Club preparations are in full swing for Audi Victoria Week. Late entries are still being accepted go to www.audivictoriaweek.com
We will bring you more news from the Australian scene over the weekend and we will be in Docklands for the Invitational mid week.
