The Moths were not happy with our polluted water
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.
