RS Tera National Championships at the WPNSA - Overall

by Emily Davis 28 Aug 2017 22:14 BST 26-28 August 2017

Day two dawned at WPNSA with a fresher breeze than predicted; with the sun still blazing in the sky it was the hottest Bank Holiday weather for many a year.

The Regatta Fleet, ably coached by Matthew Caiger and Ellen Morley launched and enjoyed further coached races on a small course. Though fresher, the breeze was by no means strong and as it was predicted to die later in the day every effort was made by the Race Officer James Gollup to get the main fleet out, who were duly launched at 9.15am.

The Pros got off all clear, the Sports had one general recall and then started to make their way up the beat. As the Sports started to catch up the Pros it became clear the breeze was dying sooner than hoped and eventually the race was abandoned. The fleet was towed ashore to await an indefinite postponement at 1130; children enjoying each others company and the sunshine.

By 4pm the wind had picked up again; the race officer once more launched the fleet and started the race. With both starts all clear it was a race against the wind which was once more dying off. With the wind being very fickle it was a game of chance for many, some moves paying off and others not. As the wind began to die the decision was made to shorten the course at the bottom gate.

In the Pro Fleet Blake Tudor (Brightlingsea SC) made it first, with Fergus Pye (Draycote) in second and Theo Stewart (Windermere) third. The Sport fleet saw William Sunderland (Olton Mere) speed to the finish, followed by Phoebe Peters (HISC) and Felix Stewart (Windermere).

With a tow back in for the sailors once more, they had managed to complete the race in time to enjoy the barbecue and then a few hardy souls stayed up for the Quiz run by DJ Marcus and his Handy Helpers, the Isle of Man contingent taking the title of National Quizmasters 2017.

A hazy start for day 3 with a disappointing lack of wind. The Regatta fleet managed to launch for a final race with Holly Mitchell from HISC taking the Regatta Championship. The main fleet was held ashore with children basking in the beautiful warm sunshine, entertaining themselves by swimming, paddleboarding and general activities until 1330 when the final decision was made to abandon all racing for the day and the championship. A stirling effort had been made by the Race team trying to find wind but unfortunately it was not to be.

Prize giving took place as swiftly as possible beginning with thanks to the committee members who were stepping down and huge thanks to the race management team. The Sport Fleet National Champion Ben Tuttle took the Podium alongside fellow HISC sailor Phoebe Peters and Tom Ahlheid (Frensham) in third. Pro Fleet National Champion was named as Ralph Nevile (Frensham) with Robbie McDonald (HISC) and Blake Tudor (Brightlingsea) in second and third.

The Under 10 trophy was won by Fflur Pierce(Rydhal Penhros) and the Jameson Trophy for the person/ family who embodies the spirit of the class was given to the Caiger family who have supported the class for many years in a variety of ways.

With prizes for all entries to the regatta fleet the winners were named as Holly Mitchell (HISC) in first, Harry West (RLymYC) and Max Tait (RLymYC) in third. As those leaving made a speedy exit to try and beat the Bank holiday traffic, others made the most of the facilities and spent a fun hour paddle boarding on enormous boards. Last minute squad applications were received and applicants will be notified in the next few weeks if they have been successful in gaining a place on the fantastic winter training that the Class provides.

Our thanks go to WPNSA for hosting the event and providing such great facilities; we look forward to returning here next year for the RS Tera World Championships.

The RS Tera Class is friendly and welcoming to all, with an emphasis on fun and inclusion alongside high quality racing. Our numbers are increasing year on year and we look forward to new members appearing at our events throughout the year. Our next event is the End of Seasons at Draycote Water SC 29-30th October.
