For 2016 we have a great programme of sailing for Toppers, both in NYC and at away events.

 

The year started off with our Spring coaching sessions, which will continue to run every Sunday until Easter. After Easter we hope to continue with more Sunday training, so watch your email and the club website for details.

 

DBSC Friday Junior racing will start after Easter (date to be confirmed). This series is open to all sailing standards – the main focus is to have fun and to get everyone on the water, and we would encourage you to sign up and take part.

 

We will also be running a dedicated Topper performance clinic as part of Course 3 of the Summer programme, from 11th to 15th July.

 

For those of you new to the class a “Traveller Event” is a fun way to get started on competitive sailing.

 

These are one day events (3 races each day), so you can travel in the morning and be home that evening after a fun and social day – entry is about 22 euro.  In addition the Topper Association usually run a training day the previous day, which is allocated on a first come first served basis.  To ensure you are eligible you just need to sign up with the Topper Association.  If it’s your first event take a look at the Topper Ireland site http://www.topperireland.com  for all you need to know.

 

The first Traveller this year is on Sunday 10th April in East Down Yacht Club.

 

The 2016 Youth Nationals competition will be held in Howth Yacht Club from 31st March to 3rd April.

 

For keen sailors, the World Topper Championships will be held this year in Ireland, in Ballyholme Yacht Club in July, and the British National Championships will be held in East Lothian in August.

 

All competitions are open to everyone – no pre-qualification needed, just register and turn up.
