Poole Yacht Club Topper

Toppers are a fantastic single handed dinghy for young sailors with some sailing skills. Several of our Optimist sailors move into Toppers when they want to move on to a bigger, faster boat.

Many of our Topper sailors compete at local, national and even international events. The Topper is a versatile and hardy boat that can be loaded onto a car for easy transportation.
