Eastern Area Racing

Like other areas, ITCA East hosts a  number of open one-day racing events each year, which we call Topper Travellers.  In recent years we have run both a winter and summer Travellers.  Traveller events are ideal to encourage sailors to move beyond racing at just their own club level, and provide the opportunity to race in a larger fleet of Toppers than is the norm at many of our local clubs.  

The Travellers are open events hosted for us by the clubs, so they run to the host's usual sailing programme and course, dependent on numbers and conditions.  We normally aim for 4 races on the day, with racing starting around 10.30am (depending on tides etc).  There will be a sailors' briefing beforehand and you can enter on the day for a fee of about £8-12, but we also ask you to register your intention to sail at these events online on our events pages to help the clubs plan for rescue cover.

Our Travellers offer sailors of all levels and experience the chance to compete against some of the best sailors in the region, including those in the various RYA junior squads.  We welcome both 5.3 and 4.2 Topper sailors (currently all boats race on the same handicap) and you will be sure of a great racing experience.  Its also a chance to meet other Topper sailors of your age from across the region, and hopefully make new friends too!
