The 2023 Topper Technology International Topper 4.2 and 5.3 World Championships will be held at the Royal Cork Yacht Club, the world's oldest sailing club in Crosshaven, County Cork, Ireland from the 24-28th July 2023.
Registration and equipment inspection will be open from the 22nd of July.
Based within one of the world's largest and most scenic natural harbours, racing is likely to be within the sheltered waters of the harbour, a short sail out from the club.
Crosshaven is a small seaside town with a good number of bars, restaurants, beaches and walks nearby. It is a 25-minute drive to Cork City where there is much to see and do. It is also a great base to explore the surrounding countryside, including Kinsale - originally a medieval fishing port, historic Kinsale (from the Irish, Ceann tSaile – ‘Head of the Sea’) is one of the most picturesque popular and historic towns on the south-west coast of Ireland.
Other local attractions well worth a visit include:
English Market, Cork City. The envy of foodies throughout Ireland, the English Market has been around since 1788 and hailed as the “best-covered market in the UK and Ireland” by chef Rick Stein. Drop into the Farmgate Café for delicious dishes made from the market’s wares.
Blarney Castle, Blarney. For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate.
Jameson Distillery, Midleton. The original buildings at the impressive 15 acres Midleton Distillery site date back as far as 1794 and have been used to distil and mature their whiskeys since 1825. Highlights include Jameson Distillery Midleton, which is home to the largest Copper Pot Still in the world!
