Moth Worlds 2014 Final Results

Nathan Outeridge is the 2014 International Moth World Champion Nathan Outteridge is the 2014 International Moth World Champion

Nathan won the World Championship with one race to sail having a 10 point lead over top Brit Chris Rashley and his discard was a 4th. The 49er Gold Medalist from London 2012 and Artemis America’s Cup helmsman proceeded to win the last race of the Championship in style with a massive lead over the rest of fleet.

Speaking to Mark Jardine of Yachts and Yachting, Nathan said “It was good, it’s been a tough week, pretty light and marginal and today we finally got some good breeze and it was actually really fun racing, so happy we got some good racing and really happy to bring home another world title. I wasn’t really expecting it after the training and prep that I’ve put in, but I think the years of sailing these boats has really helped me out throughout the week.”

Chris Rashley 4 time European Champion

Chris Rashley 4 time European Champion

As a consolation prize for second place Chris Rashley walked away with the European Championship for the 4th consecutive time!

Although disappointed to be beaten into second place, Chris is happy to admit that he was beaten by the better man on the day. However, Chris is already planning his trip to Aus and is hoping to make Nathan’s reign as World Champion a short one!

Annalise Murphy 2014 Ladies World Champion

Annalise Murphy 2014 Ladies World Champion

Annalise Murphy managed to beat Katherine Knight and Wakako Tabata to become the 2014 Ladies International Moth (Butterfly?) Champion. Annalise, the reigning Laser Radial European Champion, wasn’t enjoying the light and shifty conditions in the Silver fleet at all, to the point of offering the race committee a bribe of free drinks to cancel racing on the penultimate day! However, the last day proved better for Annalise, enabling her to post her best result in the final race.

Tom Offer first "non-professional" sailor

Tom Offer winner of the Corinthian Trophy

Thanks to the proliferation of professional sailors in the Moth fleet, Mike Lennon has kindly sponsored a new prize, the Corinthian Trophy, to be awarded to the first “non-professional” sailor in the fleet. With a fantastic 8th place finish, Tom “Special” Offer is the first recipient of this (rather nice) new trophy, beating the odd Olympic Champion and America’s Cup helm in the process!

Tom also won a new CST boom which was instantly turned into a ‘Boom of Doom’ for his pint to travel down, “It was a little bit dusty – I think I made a good effort of it.”

 

 

 

Richard Edwards, Home Build Cup winner

Richard Edwards, Home Build Cup winner

To encourage the old Mothie ethos of home building, Phil Oligario of Atomik Wands, Simon Maguire of Maguire Boats and Jason Belben of SailTek (Ronstan) kindly sponsored the prizes to be awarded to the home built boats in the fleet. The “Home Build Cup” was hotly contested between Phil Oligario himself, Richard Edwards, Alex Koukourakis and Glen Read with Richard Edwards emerging as the clear winner. They all received a shedload of prizes from Maguire Boats and Magic Marine together with a voucher to spend at CST to put towards their next project.
 

 

There’s a healthy rivalry between the British and Aussie Moth fleets for the “Moth ashes”. This light hearted competition between the fleets was very closely contested, but thanks to an excellent set of results by AMAC on the last day, the Aussies were able to win the Moth ashes.

In the competition between Moth builders, the Mach 2 won yet again. However, with 5 boats in the top 10, the Maguire Exocet has given the Mach 2 some very stiff competition. So much so that I’ve heard that the Exocet waiting list has now increased to 2 years! But Mach 2 and Maguire didn’t have things entirely their own way as an Aardvark Rocket in the hands of Dylan Fletcher also managed to make the top ten. Dylan tells me that the Aardvark build quality has improved greatly since the Ninja days, providing a less expensive way to buy a new competitive boat.

Lennon Design sails also had a good Worlds with both Chris Rashley and Mike himself in the top ten..

Silver Fleet Results

The Silver Fleet was won by Fabien Froesch of Switzerland, followed by Stefan Gieser of Germany and Kiwi Glen Read on his home built boat. However, the most outstanding achievement must be Phil Stevenson coming 4th in the Silver fleet. Phil is a sprightly 63 years young, proving that you don’t have to be a young America’s Cup sailor or an Olympian to sail an International Moth.
