Moth and Tera Race Series 2019

The Moth and Tera race series at Salterns Sailing Club is a fun way for older Salterns members to progress their race techniques in a safe but challenging environment. Organised by the Rear Commodores of Sailing (this year, Ollie Baddeley and Sammy Griffiths), RS Tera racing is open for all members with Red Pennant or above and Moth racing is open to all members with Blue Pennant or above.

"Not only does Salterns provide the most fun of environments, but it also gives you some of the toughest sailing conditions you can come across, with tricky wind shifts and gusts that you have to learn to deal with. I firmly believe that continuing to sail on the Salterns until I was 16 inspired in me the love of sailing that continues to this day, but also gave me the skills that put me up among the world’s best decision makers in the Laser Radial class on gusty and shifty offshore race days." 
- Hannah Snellgrove, Old Salt and ex-Commodore.

This year the series will start at the end of June, giving sailors the opportunity to practice on the pond during the months beforehand - and enabling those acquiring their Red or Blue Pennants at either of the 2019 Moppy Camps to participate in the full series.

The dates for the 2019 Moth and Tera Race Series are:

Saturday 29 June
Sunday 7 July
Sunday 8 September
Sunday 22 September
Saturday 5 October
Sunday 20 October
Saturday 14 November
(GRAND FINALE at the end of the Children in Need Sail-a-thon!)
Sailors should be rigged and ready at 2pm.

Notice of Race (NOR) and Sailing Instructions (SI) will be provided nearer the time. Those with the best results across the series will be awarded with the RS Tera Trophy or the British Moth Trophy at the Annual Prizegiving on Saturday 30 November.  Prizes will also be awarded for 2nd and 3rd place.
