Both these robust sailing dinghies are fantastic boats for youngsters to learn to sail and race. And, they tow well behind a RIB too.
Kicking off with the Topper National Series 6th event and Optimist Open Meeting at Poole Yacht Club, early in July.
The 5.5m will then support hundreds of Optimist sailors, at the UK National Championships, at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, 27 July to 3 August. Home of the 2012 Olympic Sailing venue.
Both boats will then get put through their paces at the UK Topper National Championships, at Largs Sailing Club, in Scotland 3-9 August, where around 200 entrants are expected.
