Moth And Tera Racing

At Salterns there is a series of Sunday afternoon races for both Moth and RS Tera sailors.  The racing will be organised by the Rear Commodores for Sailing:  Alice Wood and George Overton.

Moth Racing is open to any Salterns sailor who has passed blue pennant, and is a great way to practise handling the boats before taking Green Pennant. The RS Tera races are for those with Red Pennant or above.

It is also a great opportunity for all sailors to improve starts and racing strategy. Racing runs from 2 pm to 4:30 pm, and is a series of races normally on Sundays throughout the season under the stewardship of the Rear Commodore (Sailing) who this year is Amy Tunney.

Sailors can either do odd races or the complete series whatever suits them, but if they win the series they win a great trophy to keep for the year!

Come and give it a go you will definitely enjoy it …
