The Friendly Racing Class
The Topper offers a phenomenal race and training scene. The Topper Class is fun and friendly but competitive, and is responsible for developing some of the best young sailors in the world! But, the Class not only produce exceptional sailing talent, they also help sailors acquire key life skills to help them fulfil their true potential including independence, confidence, team work and physical fitness.

The RYA’s British Youth Sailing programme is the envy of the world! And the Topper is an integral part of the programme that gives young dinghy sailors the best possible opportunity to develop their racing talent towards Olympic Class sailing. The Topper 4.2 is the ideal introduction to racing for smaller lightweight sailors from age 9 (35kgs) up. The Topper 4.2 offers the perfect pathway into the Topper 5.3 and then beyond into Classes such as the Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Laser or 29er. Rio Olympic Gold medallist Giles Scott is yet another excellent example of young sailors following the Topper pathway with great success.
