There is more focus now on the 2017 Moth Worlds regatta event that has six months remaining, more or less same as the America’s Cup event.
Indeed, summer months promise a lot of action for sailing fans and this year will be no different. A record fleet has registered for the Moth Worlds event which is all news now in the sailing world. The entrants are a record number for this year’s event. The entries for early bird category closed for this event on the last day of January. There were 190 competitors recorded who come from 25 countries. The event is scheduled to be held from July 21st to 30th at Lake Garda in Italy, a usual venue for the event. However the record lineup is what is interesting as top sailors would be part of the fleet.
Among the list of top sailors is Paul Goodison from GBR who has several world records to his name. He would also be facing other stalwarts of the racing world such as Tom Slingsby from Australia who would be paired up with Tom Burton. All such names have several accolades attached, some of Olympic and others from reputed international regatta events.
Even the women’s lineup is impressive. Annalise Murphy was a silver medalist in 2016 Laser Radial Olympics as well as won the Moth World championship in 2014. She would be teaming up with Emma Gravare who was champion of the same event in 2013 and the current champion Wakako Tabata. Indeed, several Olympic participants would be taking part in the event such as Ian Jensen, who would be coming back from his commitments in Olympic and America’s Cup to take part in the event. With such an impressive lineup of top sailors it is surely going to grab all the attention, at a time when several regattas would be on at different parts of the world.
