Nathan Outteridge Wins NSW Moth Championship

By All News, Marine News

CST team sailor and 2009 Olympian Nathan Outteridge has come away with yet another title in the International Moth class.

The regatta was hosted by Belmont 16ft Sailing Club and attracted a strong fleet of 38 boats.

Nathan dominated the racing on his home waters of Lake Macquarie, to win the title on 8 points with 6 first places.

Both Nathan and fellow CST team sailor David Lister (who finished 3rd), used CST Nano Spars from our “Nano Pro” range.

The focus now shifts to European championship in Italy followed by 2011 Worlds hosted by the Belmont club as well.

With plenty of sail development taking place, CST is also working closely with Raptor Sails on developments for the smallest diameter Moth mast on the market, the Nano 5.
