TOPPER WORLDS NOW OPEN FOR ENTRY
The National Series can see many final races from our Topper Sailors and once again this year at the Winter Nationals we say goodbye to some of our Topper Family members. A special mention must go to 'Team McElroy' who have been on the Topper circuit for many years offering help and assistance. We wish Ben very best wishes with his progession into Spitfires and beyond.
Winter Nationals 2017
Well done to each and every one of our South West sailors that competed in the Winter Nationals this year - once again it was a blowy and cold one!
The marks didnt make it beyond the hangar on Saturday, always a sad sight to see.
The delay saw an excellent spinnaker hoist competition with many eager competitors battling outside the hangar in the elements. Unfortunately Day 1 had an AP+2 followed by a full day cancellation.
Day 2 saw some eager and early arrivals with sailors rigged and ready by 8:00 am for a 9:00 start. Excellent planning by the race committee saw 4 races for the 5:3's and 4:2's alike squeezed into a very small weather window.
Our South West sailors pulled in some great results in the extreme conditions. Will was 2nd overall and tied on points with 1st place in the 5:3's. Tamsyn Hills received the trophy for 1st Youth Girl. We had fantastic results in the 4:2's with our Zone Squad sailors, Ben P won, Natalie was second (1st Girl) and Ben R was 4th overall.
