Its been a busy year for the clubs RS Tera fleet, going from strength to strength we are regularly seeing 12 boats on the pond now having formulated an excellent training program for the children to help them develop their confidence and racing skills.
Earlier on in the year we established the class’s first Race series the RS Tera Summer Scramble Series. With a Prize donated by Neil Hardie and some excellent craftsmanship by Harry Stratton-Brown this gave the children a great Trophy to contend for. This proved as ever popular and close competition right up to the last weekend where Ralph Neville took the Title closely followed by Luke Anstey and Laura Hardie.
This was duly followed by a top coaching session by non-other than Frensham’s very own sailing superstar Nick Craig. The children were inspired and relished every bit of Nick’s helpful coaching advice. The day proved a very popular one, followed up by Nick presenting the trophy to Ralph and the runners up for their summer performances.
Following on from this a number of our top RS Tera Sailors teamed up to compete and learn in the ever competitive October Cadet Fleet Training. This proved a great learning experience for them and it was evident their Helming experience in the RS Tera stood them in good ground for two handed cadet fleet racing. Some good skills were learnt and im sure some some will venture back into the cadet for the odd guest appearance and regatta competition in the coming season.
With the Youth Cadet Training session concluded in October our sailors are now back in their RS Tera’s training hard. A couple of them attend the ever popular RS End of Season Championship to battle with the strong winds on day 1 and then in complete contrast the light winds day of Sunday.
All sailors put in a sterling performance and once again Ralph Neville, who I should add, has made next year’s RS Tera National Squad, finished a credible 8th overall giving Frensham its best ever result at a main RS Tera event.
With winter almost upon us the Fleet are already competing for the next Trophy. Yes the class now has a 2nd Trophy, named the RS Tera Winter Frosbite series and competition is already hoting up for what looks to be another close fought battle .
All this completes another successful year for the RS Tera Class at Frensham as it goes from strength to strength, giving our young sailors the opportunity to stay in the sport they love, have fun! And get some great results along the way. GOOD Luck to all in 2015!
