I sailed with Nancy and her cousin Carla, and my family has owned a few of the gorgeous and FAST Patterson design and built moths. The Patterson design and name is a legion in New Jersey.
I started racing when I was nine with Nancy and many other Moth sailors in South Jersey. My sister Carol was #2 in the world for ladies in the late 60's early 70's. Please relay my E-mail address to Nancy for me.
Gregory, I share your thoughts that the Moth class allows expression in the design and a zest for life in the sailing. They have character!
I was sent this site by a friend who also grew up learning to sail a Patterson Moth. They were the foundation years of our charater and I am glad to hear that Nancy has more Pattersons in the "wings".
