NAMING RIGHTS SPONSOR ANNOUNCED FOR THE McDougall + McConaghy 2016 International Moth Australian Championships, 2-8 JANUARY 2016


The South of Perth Yacht Club are delighted to announce McDougall + McConaghy as the naming rights partner for the 2016 International Australian Moth Championships. Scheduled to set sail on 2 January 2016, the Moth Championships will be conducted on the Swan River adjacent to the South of Perth Yacht Club, Applecross Western Australia.

The International Moth is an eleven foot long, high performance, single handed racing dinghy and is one of the few development classes left in the world that have very few design rules including no weight limit. The Moths encourage innovation as much as skill and have pioneered many of the concepts now seen widespread in other realms of sailing including the America’s Cup with the use of hydrofoils.

Entries into the 2016 International Australian Moth Championships are strong with an impressive contingent of high profile sailors from around the globe, including past National Champion Scott Babbage and European and UK Champion Chris Rashley.

Teaming up with McDougall + McConaghy are event partners Matso’s Brewery, Knee Deep Wines, CST Composites, Zhik, DeckHardware and Red Bull.

With uninterrupted views of Perth City, magnificent water-ways and world class sailing on offer, the South of Perth Yacht Club look forward to showcasing this event on behalf of the Moth Association of Australia. Spectators, sailors, friends and families are invited to enjoy the championships from the foreshore at the club Applecross from 2nd January 2016.

Sydney to Perth Return Freight Update

We have locked in a courier, BHF Couriers (the container turned out to be hyper expensive). They have quoted for 15xMach2 boxes to be sent on the 16th of December from Woollahra Saliing Club, arriving 20th December at South Of Perth Yacht Club, and returning on the 12th January arrive on the 16th January at WSC. We organised a taillift truck to make life easier for the few volunteers that will help with the lift.

The price is $430 return trip per box. To reserve your place, you will need to make payment to the IMCA Account:
IMCA Austraila
BSB 082-663
ACC 555561653
(Please notate the transaction with your Surname and NAT15)

We can maybe add more boats to the mix later but I suggest you lock in your freight early to ensure you get a place.

In addition, IMCA will refund to you $250 when you register at the regatta. So to get your boat to the other side of the country and back for effectively $180, why wouldnt you!



Moth Nationals - 2-8 January 2016 in Perth WA.

The WA Moth guys are working hard to make this an epic Nationals. Freight options are being explored and there is a container that can go Woollahra return for less the $500 a boat. Ie: If we get 20 boats, it will be $270 each! Take the IMCA-Aus subsidy of $250 and you have your boat going for next to nothing.

For the non-NSW Mothers, there is Sail Sydney on 17-20 December. This will be an ideal shake down before the Nats. Send your boat to NSW, come for a few days to tune up, and then meet your boat in Perth. Awesome!

If your interested, let us know (email) and we can start to firm up the numbers in a few months. Make it happen people!


PS: A recon trip to Tasmania checking the options for the 2017 Nats in Hobart. The Garda of the South location has plenty to offer. More on this soon, and plenty of info will be available during the Perth Nats.


 Registrations are now open for the 2015/2016 NSW State Titles to be sailed at Woollahra Sailing Club 11-13th December 2015.  Online entry at:
