The British Moth Dinghy
The British Moth is an 11 foot, one design, single handed dinghy with superb light wind performance and sheer exhilaration in a blow. Quick to plane, with a fully stayed rig, scow bow and simple hard chine hull built to closely defined tolerances, the cockpit and controls can be laid out according to the individual’s preferences and the rig is fully adjustable enabling it to be powered up or de-powered to suit a variety of helm weights and sailing conditions.
