Welcome to the home of the Southern Area Toppers

Our aim is to help Topper Sailors and Topper Parents make the most of their time in the "Friendly Class"

Local Team - Roger Cerrato (Area Rep), Andy Le Grice (Liaison), Andrew Goodman (Training)




Welcome to the web pages of the Southern Area.   We hope to be able to support you and your sailor in enjoying your time with the Southern Area Topper community who are enthuiastic, friendly and thriving. Each year we organise a programme of training and racing at clubs across the South and newcomers are always very welcome.

If you have any questions please either email us or grab any parent of a Topper sailor, we are a friendly bunch, always happy to help.

Membership of ITCA is not essential and sailors are allowed entry to 1 Open or Training event before we ask that they join the class. After this time if sailors want to continue to enter events then membership is compulsory. Find out how to join ITCA here

The Southern Area is currently covered by 3 volunteers, with responsibilties divided as detailed below. Please feel free to email us if you need any help or information or if you just want to meet up at one of the events for a chat.

As with all things relating to Junior & Youth sailing there comes a time when we need to move on as children age out of a particular class. We're actively looking for new volunteers to come forward and start to help run the ITCA Southern area. Please talk to Roger if this is of interest, we promise to ease you in gently....
