Welcome to the ITCA (GBR) Midlands Area homepage.
Our area covers the following counties in the UK:
Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, West Midlands (County), Staffordshire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.
These pages of the ITCA website are designed to:
- Help you understand the various organisations that are set up to oversee events and training, so you too can feel part of the Topper 'family'.
- Keep you updated with news of events, coaching and results in the Midlands area.
- Encourage Topper sailors, of all ages, to join in at whatever level of sailing you feel comfortable and hopefully you will want more!
The Midlands area enjoys the support of a large number of sailing clubs in the region and we have a very active Topper fleet. Organised in the area are a number of racing and coaching events and you can find information about these on our Area pages.
Midlands area sailors enjoyed good results at National level this year and many of our sailors have been selected for the ITCA 5.3 National Squad, RYA Junior, Intermediate and Zone squad status for 2017/18, once again demonstrating the strength and depth of Midlands area sailing clubs.
And we have another year of great coaching and Traveller events lined up for this season, which you can find by clicking on the links at the top of the page.
Some of you may be new to the Topper, but do come along to one of the coaching or Traveller events anyway and join in the fun.
If you have already taken part and have any ideas or suggestions as to how we could improve them, or if you have any other comments or queries, please contact our area representative with your feedback.
All of our area activities are organised by volunteers and we are fortunate to have the following helping in the Midlands area this year:
Sailing Secretary: Richard Pratt
