RS Tera Inlands 2018

Written by

We have had a fabulous weekend hosting the RS Tera inlands this weekend at Burton Sailing Club. The weather has been perfect with a good breeze and plenty of sunshine!

A huge 'Thank you' must go to all of our club members who generously gave up their time to help out.

We received so many favourable comments from both parents and children saying how well organised the event was from arrival to departure!

A superb effort from everyone in the Galley keeping the troups fed and watered, in the dinghy park, making sure the launching and recovery of so many boats was as slick as possible, and also on the water, providing safety cover and assisting with the race management alongside Tom.

It also must be said that the Tera fleet and their parents have been a pleasure to spend time with too. The youngsters are a really competitive fleet. It was a priveledge to witness some first class sailing. Parents were very co-operative on arrival and during their stay, which made the management of arrival, parking, camping and departure much easier to deal with... Thank you all and we hope to see you again in the future.
