MEDIA RELEASE FRIDAY 20 NOVEMBER 2015
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.
South of Perth Yacht Club is delighted to be hosting the McDougall McConaghy 2016 International Moth Australian Championship from 2nd to 8th January, 2016. We look forward to welcoming you.
Sailing Instructions will be available 7 days prior to the Regatta commencing.
