Topper News March 2017

Dear Topper Sailors and Parents

Welcome to the first of my news releases.  My plan it to keep you informed of events, socials etc., up-to-date postings of Toppers for sale.  While I regularly e-mail these facts to the Class members please use this page as a reference point (helpful if you are as bad as I am at deleting useful e-mails).  I will keep upcoming dates and notification of boats/equipment for sale at the top of the page for quick reference.   

A full listing for the Topper 2017 Calendar is below.  Please note the introduction of three beginner training courses – these will be helpful if you are just starting to sail a Topper or simply need to refresh your skills and boost confidence.  The courses will be sufficiently flexible to provide more advanced skills (race starts etc.) for anyone who is interested.  They are planned for Saturday afternoons to help those with children’s sporting commitments.

The last Winter Training session, while chilly, wasn’t windy enough to challenge our sailors.  Hopefully we will see more wind this coming weekend (11/12th March).  After training on the 11th Phillipa Sutton Squire will be giving a talk on Offshore racing – it would be good for our young sailors to meet her.
