Thinnair hull #1 was first shown at the RYA dinghy show in early March - since then we have been destruction testing the hull and compiling the list of modifications for the boat we will take to the Moth Worlds later this year.
With will over 200 entries this will be the biggest Moth worlds in the classes 80 year history. Attracting AC skippers and numerous Olympic medalists this may also be the hardest fought championships outside of the Olympics.
Our modification program for Boat #2 includes revised wing shape and profile, with greater emphasis on drag reduction and boat handling. A small increase in the shear-line height aft if the foredeck removing a local 35mm hollow between the wing sockets.
Some small modifications to the hull layup including stiffening of the deck.
Boat #2 will be ready late May and the first foils should follow soon after - the foils are fairly extreme compared to the current production sets available at the moment from the existing manufactures, so these will need carful analysis. We hope to offer production boats after the Worlds which is several months later than anticipated unfortunately.
