The 2019 edition of the Topper Class Rules has now published on the World Sailing website. It can be accessed from this link.[24822].pdf

There have been many changes to the rules, including important changes to advertising, kicker, painter and sail numbers.

Online entry has now been opened for the 2019 International Topper World Championships in Medemblick, Netherlands.

We hope to see you there!


Jonathan Tweedle and his Oxford Pirates team from Oxford Sailing Club, have won the 2018 RYA Dinghy Show Topper Reactivation competition.

The judges at Topper International Limited felt that they really demonstrated how the four old Army Toppers (31068, 34353, 31054, 31067) could really be brought back to life with a bit of expertise, ‘elbow grease’, teamwork and love. Well done to the team!

The World Sailing Conference 2018 was held in Sarasota, Florida, USA at the end of October 2018.

Representing the International Topper Class were Commodore Bill Brassington and Designer's representative Roger Proctor.
