A new eye is sometimes the best antidote to a stale look, and the newest droners to enter the sailing scene have an interesting take on the Moth Aussie Nationals earlier this month in Perth.  Learn more about Perth’s Skyworks WA here, and congrats to longtime SA’er Josh McKnight on yet another title.

Screen Shot 2016-01-06 at 11.12.41 AMRevolutionary rowing shell builder Chris Maas has done some pretty special things with sailboats as well – his Moth and International Canoe were some of the most beautiful pieces of worksmanship ever to grace the high-performance dinghy world.

But as a brand new dad, our own Senior Editor was more impressed with Maas’s present for his new granddaughter.  From Facebook:

At 1 1/2 years old it seems like it’s time for the granddaughter to raise her game. So I built her a little sailboat model to give her the idea. It was supposed to be simple – just a carved block of cedar, a dowel for a mast and a piece of brass flat bar for a keel. It got a little out of hand…

Just a little? More pics here.

This one is a bit excruciating to watch unless you are a foiling fanboy, and we admit our fanboyness for AMAC’s new Waszp thanks to the decent shot we think it has to be a game changer.  So here’s 46 minutes of Andrew introducing his price-point, one-design foiling moth to the world at The Foiling Week.

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 8.35.34 AMAfter missing his hoped-for launch date by a few months, Andrew “AMAC” McDougall’s long-awaited ‘people’s foiler’ is finally wet!  This pic posted by SA’er “Phil S” shows the shroudless, stayless, wishbone-boomed foiler that Amac’s been working on for five years, shot recently near Mach 2 HQ in Melbourne, Oz.

Will the Waszp change the sailing world the way the Laser or Hobie 14 did, or will it be just another fun, fast toy for the privileged few to jump into on their way to the faster, more expensive Mach 2 and its successors?  Listen to the man himself back in January, and decide for yourself.

We’ll know more soon, and if you follow the thread, you can too.

If ever a boat died with its boots on, it was this one – David Wallace and Richard Grantham’s ancient Nacra 6.0 has lived through several Worrell 1000 races and countless hours on the Georgia Coast, but a 3.8 mile sprint in 20-25 knots on Charleston Harbor was the end of her days.  Wallace and Grantham drove up from St. Simon’s Island, GA, and they said there’s no question they will be back.  They didn’t say whether they’d be racing or spectating!

Big congrats to St. Pete’s Zack Marks for absolutely destroying Bora Gulari’s record run from last year – official time is 6:10 for the 3.8 mile course. We’re not great at math, but that sounds like somewhere around a 33-knot average to us.

Billy Goldsberry gets the Rescue of the Week award for this one, and you can see a gallery of really cool land-based and sky-based shots of this unique race here.

The On-The-Water Anarchy/Sperry Top-Sider/Line Honors team is off to the pubs with the Moth World Champ, but not before gettin’ you the goods on the overall action.  And the action is all about Peter Burling – so motherfuckin’ ill!  Huge thanks to all of you for watching, and sit tight; we’ll have one hell of a reality show/reel in a couple of weeks.

Sander Van Der Borch’s sick-ass photos from the day are all over here.

Top Oracle Team USA coach and multihuller Philippe Presti shares the sentiment of the Moth Worlds fleet as the nearly always sunny summer beach town of Sorrento waits for a window to get off the lee shore beach in 25+ knots; even the Aussies are under-dressed for the monster low pressure that’s touching Port Philip Bay today.  On the other hand, most of the chillin’ sailors told us ‘it’s the first good RO decision of the week’…so there’s that.

Not everyone was too scared to go out; check out the scow!  We’ll be posting real time updates on the comments section of today’s Youtube Live feed – and no, we’re not broadcasting yet.  For all of yesterday’s pics and some gorgeous sunrise action from the awesome Sander Van Der Borch, go here.  Day 3′s video highlight reel is now up as well, and thanks to Sperry for making it all possible!
