ITCA World has received the following notice from Topper International concerning the new Lower Mast Foot bung that was released earlier this year:

Topper International will shortly be launching a new style 5.3 sail. The class association would like to take this opportunity to standardise the colour and shape of sail numbers on Topper Sails. The class association therefore intends to make changes to the class rules to require the sail numbers on all new 5.3 sails to be black Topper Numbers, that is to say numbers cut from black digital 8s to the shape specificed in the class rules.

The International Topper Class Association has announced that the 2020 International Topper Class World Championships will be held from July 18 – 24, 2020 in Riva del Garda, Trentino, Italy -  hosted by the Fraglia della Vela Riva.

After a glorious week of racing in Medemblik, The Netherlands, two new World Champions were crowned.

Yushuo Liao of Vanhang Sailing from China was the gold medal winner in the Topper 4.2  fleet, with runner up Bjorn Handley of Queen Mary SC (GBR) in silver and Jiahan Chen of Vanhang Sailing, China.

With temperatures up to 35 degrees, the action on day 3 of the Rooster Topper Worlds was certainly hotting up! After a slight delay ashore, Wednesday’s race 6 for the 4.2’s got off in 6-8 Knots with the breeze at 110 degrees. The fleet again started proceedings and a tough tactical battle ensued as sailors chased the shifty breeze.
