Malcolm Osborne reports
The final day of the 2104 Tera World Championships on Swartvlei Lagoon
produced sailing in the best wind of the week. At the scheduled start
time of 10:00 a light south easter was blowing already, with a forecast
of it picking up later in the day. This it did after the first race, but
swung to the south, causing a delay in moving the marks. Two more races
were held in a wind of 12knots. This made for a total of twelve races
for each fleet, allowing for two discards.
In the Tera Pro fleet, ever consistent James Hellstrom won the first
race of the day and was 2nd in the other two. Jason Gray was the race
winner in the other two races. This cemented the overall event results
to put James Hellstrom as the 2014 Tera Pro World Champion, with Jason
Gray in 2nd place and Christopher Crawford (ZIM) in 3rd place. In the
Tera Sport fleet, Arin Long won the first two races of the day and
Michaela Robinson won the last race of the event. Overall results for
the Tera Sport fleet have the winner as Arin Long, silver medallist
Michaela Robinson and Benji Daniel was awarded the bronze medal.
Separate girls division prizes were awarded. In the Tera Pro fleet,
first girl was Tammy Holden, ahead of Sarah Jane Deary and Niki Hiripis
(ZIM). In the Tera Sport fleet, first girl was Michaela Robinson, ahead
of Taalia Naidoo and Robyn Hellstrom.
The President of the International RS Tera Class Association, Frans
Boer, announced that the 2015 Tera World Championship Regatta would be
hosted in Holland and invited all to participate again next year. On
behalf of both S. A. Sailing and of the host club Knysna Yacht Club,
Andrew Finn congratulated the organisers on a well run event and thanked
all who participated in helping to make the regatta a success.
