At the 2017 World Championships held in Italy, it was confirmed that the International Moth Class Association of Australia (IMCAA) had won the right to host the 2019 World Championships at Mounts Bay Sailing Club, in Perth, Western Australia. The event is anticipated to see nearly 200 competitors descend on MBSC, along with family and support teams, who will attract a
global audience from the sailing community.
The event will be held over 2 weeks in late November 2019, with the Australian Championships preceding the World Championships. The timing of the event marks the 20-year anniversary of hydrofoils being successfully used at the 1999 Moth class World championship, also held on the Swan River out of Mounts Bay Sailing Club.
