Super Traveller Topper Event

Sat 01 Jun - Sun 02 Jun 2019

We are very proud to host the Topper traveller this year. The traveller event has been so successful over the past few years that we were asked to host the event for all 3 southern regions – i.e. South East, South and South West

There will be nearly 90 Toppers out on the water Saturday and Sunday so if you haven’t volunteered already and would like to be involved, please contact us.

We have organised food from 6pm on Saturday evening, all members welcome. There is also a free DISCO from 7.15pm Saturday evening aimed at our younger members. So if you are a Youth member, please show your support of the club and come down to what promises to be a fantastic evening.

All event details can be found on the ITCA website at the following address. https://gbrtopper.ourclubadmin.com/event.php?event=598

We look forward to seeing you all there.

Event Report

If you were visiting Poole YC at the beginning of June you could not fail but to have noticed the Super Topper Traveller Event, which had some great feedback from participants, helped tremendously by the beautiful weather!

Our very own Freddie Howarth came a creditable 4th overall, despite being, at 14, a year younger than most of the 5.3 rig fleet. Almost 90 young sailors took part in the weekend’s racing in some of the best conditions anyone would wish for.

That was just a warm up for the Toppers though, as they are back for more on 6th/7th July for a National Series event, the final of the six National events held all over the country. We are expecting over 150 toppers to be out on the water which is an awesome sight even for those of you who do not race. The sailors will come from as far as Cornwall and Scotland to compete and we will all give them a warm welcome. The car park will be a bit busy that weekend so if you plan to leave your car over that weekend please check where best to park to help reduce some of the congestion.

If you would like to help on the water or just hang around the club to be part of this fabulous event you can volunteer through the ITCA website: https://gbrtopper.ourclubadmin.com/event.php?event=572
