1960 – Europa (BE)

Alois Roland from Belgium developed the Europa Moth from Frenchman Pierre Marique’s drawings of a similar design. It eventually was selected as the basis of the Europe class one-design dinghy that became an Olympic class for Ladies for a number of years.

It remained a competitive Moth design in the early 1960’s across European competition within the class. Here are 2 photos of an original Europa that was restored in Belgium in 2011.
