The RS Tera is a one man monohull dinghy in the RS range of sailing boats. It is recognised by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) as an international class, and is a popular boat for beginners.
The Tera gained international status two years after its launch.
Performance and design
The Tera is suitable for introducing newcomers to the sport of sailing, but is also a good boat to race. The boat is highly robust, and it is built with a self draining cockpit and easy righting after a capsize, in addition to which it has a floating daggerboard. The boat is fairly small and light, meaning it is possible to transport it on a roof rack, and that it is manageable on the water by younger children. The mast comes in two pieces, and the boom is padded. The boat can be rowed, and has oarlocks.
The Tera has a Comptec PE3 hull and what has been described as a modern look. The sail can be hoisted and dropped with halyards.
