The RS Tera inland Championships at Rutland was attended by Megan and Millie from Bartley SC on a sunny weekend with near perfect conditions. The Main RS Tera sport fleet attracted over 50 competitors and required good tactics in a shifty and gusty Breeze. Megan had her best 4 races on the first day gaining placings in the top 15 and finishing 19th at the end of the Saturday. The second day proved harder to read and she dropped a little to finish 23rd overall in a highly competitive fleet, but returned to shore with a huge grin after sailing in the stronger winds on Sunday and happy to be in the top half of the fleet.

Millie entered the 12 strong Regatta fleet which proved to have tougher competition than she has faced in other events. It soon became apparent that one of the local sailors would wrap up the overall win leaving the rest of the fleet to fight it out for 2nd. With 10 coached races and a rapidly improving fleet Millie had to work hard and apply all she had learnt to keep ahead. She managed to win one of the races and then consistency proved to be the eventual differentiator with top 6 placings in every race including many in the top 3 she maintained her first day advantage to finish 2nd place Inland Regatta fleet Champion at the close of the weekend. This is the 3rd event she has taken the 2nd prize so a feeling of 'always the Bridesmaid, never the Bride...' is beginning to prevail, maybe the illusive win will come at the end of seasons, then it really will be time to move into the main fleet and play with the big kids...
