Topper Wicklow Travellers Report

There was a good gathering of Topper sailors at Wicklow SC, Sunday 14th May, with an overall 36 sailors taking part: 28 off 5.3 Rig and 8 off 4.2 Rig sailors. Four races were held in very blustery conditions, squally, sunny bright, wet – ranging from F1 to F4 – making for tough conditions all round, particularly with a good tidal flow across the course.
