RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show

Topper International will be attending the upcoming RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show at Alexandra Palace on the weekend of 4th – 5th March 2017. We will have a selection of our range on Stand B58 for you to see. And our helpful and friendly sales staff will be on hand to offer any advice or answer any of your questions. As always, if you are looking to buy a new boat, we will be able to offer special Boat Show rates and finance deals over the weekend.

Alongside a shiny new Topper, as part of our ‘Re-Activate your Topper’ initiative, we will also have an older Topper (No. 10,000) that has been rescued from a boat park and is being brought back to life. The boat has been restored on one side, and the other half is unrestored to illustrate how easy it is to transform a disused, unloved and forgotten Topper and bring it back to life and back out on the water sailing again. The initiative is open to all UK Sailing Clubs and Schools who are interested in increasing the number of youth and junior sailors sailing at their Clubs. Please pop along to the Stand if you are interested in taking part.

The Topper Class Association (GBR) will also be at the show on Stand C48. The Class are launching the ‘Topper Taster Days’ initiative from their Stand where Clubs are visited by a top coach with three race ready Toppers to train three sailors from the Club for a day. The sailors who take part will also be offered free entry to one ITCA (GBR) National or Regional event, each with a boat to compete in at the event loaned to them courtesy of Topper International. Pay a visit to the International Topper Class Association (GBR) stand and you could be in with a chance of winning a ‘Topper Taster Day’, in the ‘How do you measure up?’ competition.

The RYA will also have a Topper on display on their Stand, in recognition of the role the boat plays as an RYA ‘Pathway Class’. The Topper is an integral part of the RYA ‘Youth Racing Programme’ enabling young dinghy sailors to develop their racing talent towards Olympic Classes sailing.

And, The RYA Magazine are running a competition to Win a Topper (with your choice of a 4.2 rig or a 5.3 rig) worth £2,795. So, make sure you take the opportunity to enter the comp!

So, there is a lot going on, and we would love to see you at the show.

Advance tickets are available at a special discount rate of £10.00 for RYA members and £12:50 for non-members. RYA affiliated clubs can also take advantage of a special ticket price of £10 when booking ten tickets or more. Don’t forget two children go free with each paying adult as well.

To buy your tickets visit www.dinghyshow.org.uk or by calling the ticket hotline on 0844 858 9069.
