The 2016 RS Tera Northern Series drew to a close on Saturday 8 July at South Windermere SC. Greeted by the forecast of strong winds and the reality of driving rain the helms were not in the least deterred and, as they have been throughout the season were quickly out on the water and enjoying whatever the weather could throw at them. The afternoon session in particular showed just how much these talented young helms have come on with a programme of winter coaching and the chance to race against each other at the 4 meetings which make up the series.

The series ended, as it began – in the glorious surroundings of the Lake District - and there was another common theme – with the 'Clark Kent' appearing again – no, not superman but super helms Ellie Clark and Oliver Kent, both from Ripon SC, who lifted the series trophies after some very consistent sailing over the summer, including their win at the Northern Championships hosted by Bassenthwaite SC at the start of the season. Theo Stewart (Windermere School) just lost out to Clark with the final event deciding the overall Sport series place. This was echoed further down the fleet with a number of places where final position was decided by the application of the rule book and it's defined systems for breaking ties.

Jennie Clark, RS Tera North Rep, congratulated all the helms who had qualified for the series (30 in total) and taken part in the series (56 in total), and wished the fleet and her successor, Emma Hawley, every success for the future, presenting the class with 2 new trophies to be awarded to the overall winners of the series each year. The next challenge for the RS Tera fleet will be the Worlds in Spain, followed by the Nationals at Pwllheli and a good turn out from the North is forecast for both events.

Overall Results:

Pro fleet
1st Oliver Kent, Ripon SC
2nd Tatiana Dickinson, Derwent Reservoir SC
3rd Cameron Straughan, Derwent Reservoir SC
4th Thomas Nicholls, Derwent Reservoir SC

Sport fleet
1st Ellie Clark, Ripon SC
2nd Theo Stewart, Windermere School
3rd Thomas Donald, Derwent Reservoir SC
