The Moths were not happy with our polluted water

The Coconut Grove Sailing Club hosted Moths last month. Not the insect, the US Moth Fleet just in from the Bahamas. This was the third event this season for the Moth Fleet and they were back in the Grove for the first time in four years.

The Moth Class is a small development class of sailing Boat. It was originally a cheap sailing boat built at home, by hand, now it is a high-end mostly commercially-made boat designed to hydroplane on foils. 

The US Moth fleet puts the environment first and they had stayed away according to Class President Matt Knowles, because of the trash and debris in the water. This is one reason for the water clean up that you see at the Seminole Boat ramp often. I had not known about all the dirt and debris that was down below the surface. 

It's interesting to see that a whole sailing fleet would keep their distance in the name of the environment. It's also interesting to know that the City of Miami has taken it seriously enough to clean out the waterways.
