Report - May 2004
The Hydrofoil developments are generating a lot
of interest in the Moth
class and so all that have contributed to this development get 10 out of
10 from me. When I saw pictures of the boats flying it was enough to
motivate me to put down the nappies and try to get back in a Moth after
7 years of my boat collecting dust in my parents garage.
There has also been interest in Austria (in Europe with no kangaroos,
The hills are alive with the sound of Julie Andrews, etc...) where I now
live and where we have a new Moth Sailor with a boat (Micheal
Gilhofer). We will have 2 Moth sailors here with boats if anyone knows
how I can get my boat back from Adam May in the UK and delivered near
here? In order to try to coordinate this interest locally and do the
job Rohan Veal thrust upon me I have set up a basic Austrian Moth Website.
There is not much content on the site at the moment apart form a Picture
gallery, but this is mean to be a base on which to build. If you have
CopyRight Free pictures you could contribute to the gallery then please
let me know.
So Austria is on the Moth Sailing Map, although it is not official and
very basic at the moment.
By the way has there been a "who was first to fly a Moth on foils"
debate because I think it was Andy Patterson nearly 10 years ago.
All the best,
