Racing will be held on Monday 31st August and Tuesday 1st September with the Championship consisting of up to 8 races. The RS Tera Pro National Champion, RS Tera Sport National Champion and RS Tera Club titles are up for grabs, promising fierce racing amongst this Junior fleet. With 100 boats entered in a staggering 3 hours and many more on the waiting list, it confirmed the RS Tera Class’ predictions that there was overwhelming interest for the event to go ahead if it was safe to do so.
The long-range forecast is currently showing a lighter tricky breeze for the Monday which builds into a fresher southwesterly on Tuesday. The mixture of conditions will challenge sailors throughout the fleet which should give all competitors a chance to shine.
