RS Tera National Championships at Brightlingsea Sailing Club - Overall

by Matthew Rayner & Alice Davis 31 Aug 2019 21:27 BST 24-26 August 2019

Sport Fleet report by Matthew Rayner (Sport Fleet National Champion 2019)

The RS Tera Sport National Championships were hosted at Brightlingsea this year, bringing fabulous sun all weekend. We had three full days of racing on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday with a Sport fleet of 73 boats making it the largest ever RS Tera Sport Nationals.

Saturday was the windiest day, making the Brightlingsea tide less important than on the other two days. With slightly lighter winds in the first two races, they were both won by Nathan Russell. However, as the wind increased for the third race, I managed to win this one with Finlay Lomas-Clarke not far behind. The wind started to die off for the final race of the day and we began to see more of the current World Champion (Jac Bailey), who went on to win the final race.

Sunday was lighter, meaning the tide made a big difference and getting this right was important. The first race was won by Nathan Russell again. However, it was a different story in the other races where Oliver Stratton-Brown, who hadn't had the best first day, won the next two races. The last race on Sunday was won by Jac Bailey.

The final day was even lighter than the day before, but we still managed to get the two outstanding races in. Again, understanding the tide was the important factor of the day and the first race went again to Oliver Stratton-Brown and the second to Freddie Sunderland. Having sailed a more consistent regatta than others I was able to beat the boats I needed to in the final race to win the Championships over all.

I learnt to sail in a Tera five years ago and to now win the Nationals is a massive achievement. Something I will never forget!

Pro Fleet report by Alice Davis (Pro Fleet National Champion 2019)

The Nationals this year at Brightlingsea were amazing. It was such a fun social event as well as a really good sailing venue and the organisation by the club was outstanding. On day one I started very solidly and continued that through the event. On the last day we only needed to do 2 races as the race officer had banked most of them already due to the forecast looking light, but we had some lovely wind and I rounded off the series with two firsts.

The tide was a strong factor in the races though the shifts played their part too! I was very pleased to win my last event in the Tera, especially at such a great event which reminded me of my first ever nationals at Derwent reservoir. I will miss the boat and the class a lot, it has been fantastic to make so many friends and has developed my sailing but I am looking forward to moving into bigger boats where I am sure to see those friends again.
