Imagine this for a second, 140 Moths buzzing around with just the sound of the foils cutting through the water. That was the scene on Lake Garda last week during the 2021 REDORO International Moth World Championships.

This development class is known for attracting the best in the game. Slingsby, Jensen, Bruni - good luck trying to add up the Olympic Medals, America's Cup wins or World Championship titles shared amongst the entry list. 2021 Women's World Champion Josie Gliddon summed the competition up: "it's a seriously tough fleet. If you look at the amount of gold medalists in the top 10, it's insane."

While Moth sailors make it look easy, flying on foils is anything but. 2021 World Champion Tom Slingsby likens a Moth Worlds to his own personal America's Cup. In addition to out- sailing your competition, competitors have to make critical performance decisions such as; foil, platform and mast selections, and last but not least - what sails to use (Slingsby uses North 3Di). It's the combination of these unique decisions that make or break your success on the water, and in the class.

North Sails joined the competitors during the event on Lake Garda and we're happy to share our latest video drop.
