Doyle Sails: Like a Moth to a flame

Doyle Moth sails are the light at the end of the tunnel for an international class that is home to some of the best foiling sailors in the world. These sailors know that when yachts are the same, sails are an opportunity to gain a performance advantage, and this is it. Don’t get left behind.

Our new Doyle Sails 2020 International Moth range is an iteration of the very successful Doyle sails used at the Moth World Championships in 2019. Our team remains consistent with Moth experts Kyle Langford and Tom Johnson leading the charge on innovation, delivering a design that is second to none.

The Doyle Sails resident moth expert is Grand Prix sailor Luke Molloy, who calls Palma home, together with Kyle, Luke continually strives to refine and deliver the ultimate Moth sail, which is exactly what they have achieved. We asked Kyle if he had any comments after testing the final Moth design before it was released this week to the world, and this is what he had to say –

“The sail is f*ing rapid, buy one. Actually buy two” – Kyle Langford


New to the 2020 Doyle Sails Moth range is a world-class Stratis membrane option, which further optimises the Structured Luff design and ultimately brings more speed into the Moth Class. The refined finishing details and fit is in keeping with our ethos of lighter weight and better shape, equal more speed.


With more than 3kg less weight in the sail, a Doyle Moth sail is the ultimate performance advantage. When a fully rigged Moth weighs between 35 – 38 kg fully rigged, this is a big gain for the overall weight of the yacht. Less weight = more speed.

Doyle Moth sails weighs just 4kg, with alternative Moth sails weighing upwards of 7kg. 


Doyle Moth sails are the only sails available to this class that include Carbon, delivering less stretch, less weight and more performance. The inclusion of carbon also means that Doyle Moth sails hold their shape throughout the wind range. All other alternatives offering a lower performance orientated product, with more stretch and weight.


Once again we’re ahead of the game, including Structured Luff technology into Moth Sails, something that is exclusive to Doyle Sails.
