September 21-22, 2019 Dana Point, California, USA

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.

RS_Tera-NAs-Start-LineThe 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

* The North American RS Tera Class Association is a part of the RS Sailing North America Class Association and by joining the Tera Class you are actually becoming a member in the RS Sailing North America Class Association.

If you’d like to be more involved, we would love to hear from you!

Your Association - The RS Tera North America Class Association - is run by volunteers coordinating everything Tera, from introducing young sailors to our sport through to managing and organizing racing events, training and teams. The RS Tera is a seaworthy, durable, strict one-design and a World Sailing International Class since 2007.


World Sailing Status: International

International Class Website: http://www.rstera.org/

The RS Tera is a 21st century single-hander that looks cool and makes sailing easy. 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, 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.
