How they fly?

We have heard the question of why Moth sailboats can "fly" over water in contrast to normal sailing ships since we started the campaign. That's why we sat down with Franzi and created an infographic. Have fun!


Lake Garda: a paradise for “motties”

This year’s Austrian National Championship was supposed to be Franzi’s big premiere out on the water.  Unfortunately, the wind simply did not want to cooperate, and the sailors had to leave without competing. Luckily now everyone is looking forward to the Foiling Week on Lake Garda and Franzi’s heart beats faster with anticipation, and rightly so!

Franzi looks forward to being out on the water again!

It has been such a long time since the last moth sailing event occurred and the anticipation is high for the Austrian National Championship taking place at the beautiful Lake Atter. Of course, hygiene measures are still being observed by the race committee and all athletes are being tested for Covid-19 before and after the competition. Fortunately, everyone was negative. Nothing should get in the way of this light-hearted race out on the water. However, not everything always turns out the way we hoped for.



Foiling Week at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine

On Monday, September 14th, 2020, sailors from all over Europe swarmed with their moths to Lake Garda. A few days of preparation were needed before the first big international regatta on the European mainland - the "Foiling Week" - took place the following Thursday.

Regatta at Lake Achensee 2020

There comes a time when we make a difference

Spring 2020: Due to the tightened security measures from Covid 19, the start of the season was unfortunately postponed for most sailors. Although the regulations started to ease up at the beginning of June, many “Mothies” were not back on the water until the beginning of August – a long break, also for Franzi. She discussed with us the late start of the season and how she did at the regatta weekend on Lake Achensee.


Start of the new sailing season

Franzi is overwhelmed with joy: she can finally sail again! After the Bavarian Yacht Club (BYC) had to remain closed during the winter break due to corona, sailors can go out on the water again.

Sailing on Lake Starnberg

“If you’ve waited so long for sailing after the lengthy winter break, the first time back on the water at the start of the season is always something special,” laughs Franzi, adding: "And this year was also a shaky time, because you didn’t know how and when to start because of corona.” Even more reason to go sailing at the BYC on Lake Starnberg.

After the EM is before the World Cup

Franzi still has the happy smile on her face after the good placement at the Moth Sailing European Championship in Portugal three months later. But actually she has nothing to laugh about right now. She is in the middle of her bachelor's thesis and has to train hard for the upcoming World Cup in Australia.

Moth Europeans 2019

Congratulations Franzi!

The Moth Europeans 2019 are over and we congratulate the new European Champion! On Tuesday, Franzi secured first place with the women after four regattas. Since from this day unfortunately the weather conditions no longer play along, you could not dispute the first place and she is now the new European champion in moth sailing!

Interview with Franzi Mäge

The Moth Sailing World Cup in Australia is waiting for Franzi

Franziska Mäge (23) has an unusual passion: When other sailors quickly leave the water because of too much wind, it is only really fun. The reason: Your boat, a so-called "Moth", needs strong wind to reach its full speed potential (up to 60 km / h) to be able to exhaust. As part of our image campaign, we are accompanying Franzi this year, among others. to the World Cup in Australia.
