Annual Moth Report - 2003
Sent out an email questionare to the 38 mothies
that used to sail in New
Zealand of that I have had these responcies to the following questions. Only
had 5 replys
- Are you still an active moth sailor. 2 no and 3 yes
- Would you be prepared
to rejoin the Moth association?
- Are you building a new moth.
4 no’s 2 yes
From the questionnaire we also managed to track down another boat which
built in 1995.
Active Moths sailing at the moment 3, But we have now managed to get another
one interested who came the Auckland anniversary regatta, will see him on
the water at the NZ nationals at French bay in March which will be the first
event since 1996, We also hope to get a few people to come and try out the
moths at the Nationals.
As for the NZ Moth Association i will try and get this formed at the
nationals, NZ moth funds I have managed to track these down hopefully move
to a bank account this week, One thing I have not been able to track down
the Moth registrations and Boat numbers, this will need to be resolved as
the 4 new boats will need to be registered. For this we may need help from
the world association with documents etc..
Over the past 6 months the 3 moths that have been sailing are going to
different clubs to sail to raise the profile of the Int Moth, I manage to
get an advert into the New Zealand Boaties book which is now out , this is
free publication to all the sailing clubs in the North island.
