Do you have old and unused Topper hulls at your Club? The ‘Reactivate your Topper’ initiative aims to help you put the value back into them and get these dinghies back on the water.

 Reactivate Your Topper

With a little bit of know-how and effort, you can easily restore them yourself. Click here to watch the video for some tips on how to bring an old Topper back to life. It’s easy!

Any replacement parts such as toe-straps, mastgate, self-bailer, ropes, blocks, sails, etc are available to buy from Topper International Limited. Special highly subsidised prices for parts are available to Sailing Clubs/Schools (via the Club Secretary or similar).

As if you needed an added incentive to reactivate an old Topper, the best re-activation photos will win a brand new, race ready Topper from Topper International for your club.

Send before and after shots of your Topper reactivation with your Name, Club and Boat Number to the ITCA (GBR) Class Secretary. Entries close 1 June 2018*.

And if for any reason you are unable to reactivate your old Toppers yourself, the team at Topper International are happy to do the work for you at their factory. Please contact Russ Dent on 01233 629186 for more information.

*Please note the judges will be the Chair of ITCA (GBR) and the Marketing Director of Topper International Limited. The decision of the judges will be final.
