RS TERA – THE FAST, FUN AND ADDICTIVE WAY INTO SAILING

RS Tera
Fast and exciting 21st century single-hander that looks cool and makes sailing addictive. From entry level to international competition the RS Tera gets kids hooked on sailing. And that’s exactly what we want. It’s packed with features that make sailing safe and easy. It comes up dry from a capsize. It’s quick and simple to rig by youngsters. It’s tough. Two sail sizes mean small novices and experienced teenagers love the RS Tera equally, so parents do too. Above all, at the beach with family – or on the World Circuit with international competitors – the emphasis is on fun afloat while building incredible sailing experiences. Perfect.

South Africa
