The NZ International Moth Nationals are now scheduled to be held in October 1st-3rd at Murrays Bay Boating Club, incorporated into the annual Wincham regatta. Our NZ fleet of hydrofoiling moths is starting to grow, with sailors of varying skills from newbies to elite. We encourage all Moth sailors to come and have a go, no matter what your level (you won╩╝t be the only one) There is much to learn and plenty of help available, and it will be a lot of fun! Details/NOR will be released shortly.

Several NZers are thinking about attending the 2010 Europeans, held this year at Lake Silvaplana, Switzerland. It should be quite an event with Assassin represented by many of the European sailors.
