Brent One DesignUKNamed due to being first boats to sail on Brent Reservoir

The British Moth was developed from the American Moth by Sidney Cheverton in 1932 and given a higher aspect rig. Since the boats were the first to sail on Brent Reservoir they were also known as the Brent One Design.
With boats now also available in fibreglass, this is an active class.
