RS Tera Fleet National Championships Peter Newton
Racing on Olympic Waters for the first time, on the morning of 1st June, the RS Tera Class arrived at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy for their National Championships. Summer had finally arrived in Weymouth with clear blue skies and blazing sunshine and a North Easterly breeze that was going to be a challenge for the race time. It was going to be a tricky days racing with the breeze shifting; most of the afternoon saw around ten knots, with gusts up to fifteen, and lulls as low as six; 91 sailors completed all five races and all of them came ashore buzzing from a great but challenging day on the water. With five different race winners and sailors scoring up and down the fleet during the day it was clear this was not going to be an easy ride for the eventual winner. Sunday was a beautiful day, but not great for sailors, the wind was in the North East and very light at the start of racing, the PRO fleet got away and managed to complete race six, won by Arthur Brown, who secured the win. 'It was a tough race with the weather not to our advantage, I really enjoyed racing here, we were all buzzing for the weekend, and racing in the wake of the Olympians was a great experience.' In the Sport Fleet, Jack Lewis took the title. Ian Jameson Class Association Chairman commented 'We are thoroughly looking forward to returning to sail on the Olympic waters for the World Championships; the facilities here are second to none.' The RS Tera World Championship will take place at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy on July 28th – Second August.
