Finally got a few Mach 2 used boats for sale. Little bit of a range in prices but all good boats. Range of cost is due to upgrades the boat has had or missed! Send a private message if you are interested. It is a great time to get into the class, we currently have 7 new boats under build for USA owners and a great schedule with an Oct event in San Diego and two events in Key Largo in Nov. There is high demand for these used boats and we are very fortunate to have some right now. Don't expect them to last. ... See MoreSee Less
GREAT NEWS!! We have locked in on housing for the Moth Worlds in Sorrento.
Please respond to Matt as to whether you are coming or not. We need final numbers before September.
I found two houses within walking distance to the Sorrento Sailing Club where the Moth Worlds will be located.
They are both PERFECT HOUSES for large groups, hanging out, working on boats, etc. Both have large living spaces, so it may be possible to set up air mattresses, but I need to double check if that is ok. These properties both have a 14 night minimum rental are currently available for the period of 2 - 16 January 2015. Rates shown are based on a 14 night stay and are inclusive of all linen and towels. • Capricorn Coast - 3 Queen size beds, 2 single beds. 3 Full Bathrooms. • The Moorings - AUS - 2 Queen size beds, 4 single beds (Note: they are two sets of bunk beds). 3 Full Bathrooms. ...
