Victor Díaz de León Dominates in an Extreme New Sailing Style

In the three years since Díaz de León first sailed a foiling Moth sailboat, the class has grown in popularity. This year’s competition will be held in Bermuda March 25 through April 1 and include 50 to 75 of the world’s best competitors. And more sailors have felt the pull to try the most extreme version of their sport. “Sailing in general is thought of as kind of a slow sport,” Díaz de León says. “But the Moth is actually superfast and really exhilarating and extreme.”
