Round one of the KA Sail Victorian Moth Grand Prix Series has kicked off in spectacular fashion as part of the Sail Sandy Regatta at Sandringham Yacht Club. After a long Winter the Victorian Moth fleet was keen to get back on the water and battle it out.

Day one of the regatta was fairly uneventful with the breeze disappearing prior to the start and no races sailed. Day two of the regatta was a completely different story with four races sailed back to back in a 15-20 knot south westerly, in typical Port Phillip Bay fashion the waves were up.

The Moth class has come a long way in the past twelve months with waves becoming much less of an issue to previous years. In the past when you rounded the top mark you said your prayers, sent it down the waves and hoped for the best. Now the boats are much better able to track down the waves, allowing the sailor to push a bit harder without the fear of being catapulted in a capsize. Design guru, Andrew McDougall, has made some huge advancements with the control systems and adjustable wands on the Mach2's, as well as developing new techniques to tackle the large waves. These new advancements helped keep the fleet upright (for the most part) throughout the four races.
