The second day of the Moth World Championship, organized by the Yacht Club Argentino, was another complicated one due to the weather conditions. After the morning sailors' meeting, the Race Committee decided to wait ashore first due to lack of wind, and then due to an approaching storm.

After 16:30, the fleet was finally able to come down and complete a challenging race with 18 knots from the SSW and quite a lot of swell.

American Richard Didham won the race, followed by Argentine Massimo Contessi and American Brad Funk.

A second race was considered but conditions were too tough.

With these two races Massimo Contessi leads the standings with two second places, and is three points ahead of the Italian Francesco Bruni, who is in second place. The podium is completed by the British sailor Dylan Fletcher Scott with eleven points.

American sailor Helena Scutt leads the Female category.

Racing will continue on Thursday, waiting for the wind to cooperate a little more.

The Moth 2022 World Championship is organized by the Yacht Club Argentino at its headquarters in Dársena Norte between November 28th and December 4th. 39 boats from 9 countries are participating. Its sponsors are: Conservas Marechiare, Oh! Gift Card, Lowe Developers, Zhik, Unplastify, Maguire Boats, PSA, Garda Carbon Lab.
