Duncan Truswell, RYA Youth Racing Manager commented "The RS Tera, which is the first class to be recognized at this status since the inception of a revised policy in the spring of 2009, delivers a comprehensive programme of domestic competition for a wide range of abilities. The class has established itself as a popular and versatile training and race training boat which already has a strong representation within some key clubs and centres."
The Tera is already an ISAF International Class and an ISAF Recommended Learn to Sail Programme boat which is rapidly spreading around the world. The World Championships took place in Carnac, France in July running concurrently with the RS Feva Worlds. Around two hundred boats made for a vibrant event, which, true to form was notable for parents having as good a time as the young competitors!
Jon Partridge from RS commented "It is the combination of exciting performance, modern looks and tough rotomoulded construction that has made the Tera such a winner. Young sailors love the Tera and parents and clubs love it too because of the sensible cost and low maintenance. We believe the Class has a big future and the RYA's award of Recognised Junior Class status is another important milestone, so our thanks to their YSG and Racing committees who have worked on this."
