Moth and Tera Race Series 2020

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, Violet Edwards and Albert Barber), 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.

For those new to racing this can seem a bit daunting, but it really isn’t. Even if the sailor doesn’t want to race they can just tag along and sail the course, building skills and experience. You never know they may start passing other boats and catch the racing bug! We strongly recommend taking part. Any questions on the series please speak to Violet or Albert.

  • 26 April
