'How do you Measure Up?' - Competition winner announced
If you were at the 2017 RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show and you wanted the chance to win a Topper Taster Day for yourself and two other sailors at your club, all you had to do was guess how tall Giles Scott, Olympic Gold medal winner and former Topper National Champion, was in 2001. As we know Giles’ hard work, dedication and talent have led him to huge success in sailing and is a great inspiration to Topper sailors, and we want to thank him for supporting this competition.
The lucky winner is Johnny Woolgar of Papercourt Sailing Club. He guessed correctly that Giles was 1.65 metres in 2001. There were a few correct answers, so the winning entry was drawn out of a hat by a class official.
A top coach will be visiting Papercourt with three race ready Toppers and train Johnny and two other sailors from the club for a day. Following the training, the sailors will be given free entry to either an ITCA (GBR) national event or a regional one. They will also be provided with a boat to sail on the day.
In addition Topper International is kindly offering upgrade packs of equipment at a special price for any Topper at Papercourt Sailing Club that needs upgrading.
So all in all, it is a WIN-WIN, both for Johnny and for his sailing club!
