The Topper dinghy has a unique place in the world of sailing instruction. It has made a greater contribution to the development of teaching techniques than any other boat in the last ten years, and its role is never likely to be challenged by any other type of dinghy.
"It's hard to find a sailing school or holiday centre without a fleet of Toppers and here's why: Topper's cutting edge comes from her robustness, her simplicity, versatility and her ease of handling ashore and afloat. She'll take all the knocks of a sailing day and bounce back smiling. Just like the students. She's taken the fear factor out of capsize drill. She's made it easy to learn and fun to be with."
