Foiling dInghies that scream through the water at powerboat speeds are now normal, though uncommon. The Moth is the key example but have you ever seen a Waszp? It looks identical so what’s the difference? The Waszp is the one-design class boat, made by the same guys. Here’s what the site says. Oh, and the cost? $10,500, which apparently is half that of a Mach2 Moth. So yeah, go get a fleet of them! WASZP writes: “The WASZP project was conceived in 2010 by Andrew McDougall, designer of the world beating Mach 2 foiling Moth. The Moth is a racing boat with very few rules and therefore has developed into a boat that is beautiful to sail on the water, but not the answer to everyone’s requirements for a sailing dinghy. The concept was for a foiler similar to a Moth, but answered all the sticking points that stop people buying a Moth.”
