Is There Any Dinghy More Dramatic Than A Moth?

6 Feb

Or more exhilarating? 

I don't think so, and the images don't lie. Thierry Martinez won the 2011 Photo Of The Year for the above shot of Nathan Outteridge being ejected by his Moth at the 2011 World Championships. Here's another (and the full sequence is right here).

And while photos are one way to try and grasp the true nature of a Moth, you have to go to video to

understand the true, mesmerizing, essence of the thing.

So go sailing with one for a few minutes:

Phew. I need a smoke.
