Welcome to the
International Topper Class Association (GBR)

We are proud to be the UK arm of the International Class Association for the Topper sailing dinghy. The Topper is an iconic single handed sailing dinghy that has provided years of pleasure to sailors around the world, with nearly 50,000 boats now sold. From its early days as a family fun boat, a role it still fulfils to perfection, the Topper has evolved to become one of the UKs most popular single handed racing dinghies.

Virtual General Meeting - 22nd July at 7pm


A Virtual AGM date has been set for 6th August. Logistics in facilitating this, however, are complex and we feel do not guarantee members their right to speak.

We think that it would be better to have a physical AGM the next time we meet and to do this we plan to have a very quick single item agenda, General Meeting ‘online’. This will enable us to make a temporary change to the constitution, allowing us a deferred date for a physical AGM.

The meeting will last no longer than 15 minutes and so we ask you to make all efforts to attend as we require 30 members to make the meeting quorate.

Joining details and the full proposal will follow.
