Inspiring young sailors into a lifetime in our sport – The RS Tera

July 27, 2020
RS Tera MK2

The RS Tera – a 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.


Don’t just take our word for it

“An ideal boat to introduce kids to sailing – modern looking, fun to sail and exceptional value…buy one and burn the Playstation”. – WhatBoat Magazine

“Safer, non-swamping, self-bailing, kid-right-able, faster, more fun, durable, comfortable, and affordable boats are finally available. This realization is quickly gaining acceptance”. – Berkeley Green
California – USA

“…if a boat as simple, slick and downright easy to sail as the Tera had been around when I was a child, I would have wanted to do a lot more sailing.” – David Ritchie – Former RYA National Sailing Coach
