Sixty Moody yachts gathered at Cowes for the first event to celebrate 2010 – the 25th Anniversary of the Moody Owners’ Association. The yachts ranged from 28ft to 54ft and their crews were entertained by a Dixieland jazz band, and a reception at the Royal Corinthian YC.
Racing events took place, sponsored by Harken, in testing and blustery conditions, and the Race Officers of the Island Sailing Club ably managed a fleet of cruising yachts racing at close quarters. Good practice for the Round the Island race. The race overall was won by MOA President, designer Bill Dixon sailing his Moody 47 ‘Tikka’, and Harken managed to award a prize to virtually every competitor.
