2019 RS Tera North American Championships
The second annual RS Tera North American Championships was held in the waters off Dana Point, California. Dana Point is iconic, known for the birth of the Hobie Cat and now a significant starting point for the RS Tera in North America.
The inaugural 2018 Championships attracted 31 boats and were won by Emily Rychlik of Westlake Yacht Club. This year we attracted 44 RS Tera sailors from 15 programs with competitors traveling from Maine, Colorado, and all over California. 2019 also featured two divisions: the Sport Class with a 38 sq. ft. Dacron sail and the 50 sq. ft. Pro Class, which uses a full batten Mylar sail on the same mast. This versatility allowed sailors as young as 7 years all the way sailors age 15 to compete in a wide range of conditions. Full report & results here…
