The Moth class has come a long way in the last 10 years. Foiling Moths are now the go-to choice of boat for single handed small boat sailors wanting exhilirating sailing and racing. Phil 'Bugs' Smith has been at the forefront of design and technology for the Moth class since foiling became the most important innovation in sailing.

All our sails are designed and handcrafted here in our Western Australian sail loft under Bugs' watchful eye.

OW11 MOTH MAIN

ORGANIC WING

State of the art sailmaking comes into its own with the release of the 2019 MOTH main OW11 designed by Phil Bugs Smith.

Crafted using Dimension Polyant 'Lite Skin' fabric, which has a textured feel, and a trendy sleek look.

Sails like this aren't developed over night. The OW 11 is the result of over 8 years Moth sail development .  It is also a little known fact that sail designer Phil 'Bugs' Smith has been building camber induced sails since 1982, so this experience has been invaluable in creating this new Moth main.

Extensive testing has resulted in a sail design with the following attributes:

  • Covers the greatest wind range possible.

  • Flattens nicely for upwind work

  • Morphs effortlessly into a deeper sail for downwind

  • Utilises 5 new Bugs split camber inducers for slick rotation

  • easy to rig

  • Available in durable 'LITE SKIN' fabric

  • Due to the inherent stability of the design, only 6 battens are required, saving weight.

  • SPECS:

  • Fits standard mast bend and spreader position.

  • Rigs on standard length masts. (5350mm)

  • Hound hole at 1900mm from top of mast.

  • Standard spreader position 3625mm. Foot length 2150 from front of mast at pocket to outer hole in clewboard.

  • Luff length: 5350mm

I have sailed three times on 10 to 15 knot sea breeze with OW11 Moth Main and C8 CAM.
As conclusion, I thought they were very good.


In upwind, I felt more stable than ever. OW11 is also good to be able to easily change the depth of the sail with cunningham. And in height sailing, l felt more lift power from the C8, so I could keep on hiking easier. While I felt more bouncing but no problem in these wind range.
In downwind, I felt C8’s lift power effective on wavy condition, more comfortable handling in the waves than before. Hiroaki, JAPAN MAY 2019
