TOPPER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2017

1

The Topper is undeniably one of the world’s fastest growing youth boats with over 200 competing at this year’s World Championships in Loctudy.

Overall the points were very close at the top with a few position changes on the final day. Gold fleet and overall 2017 Topper World Champion was Scott Wilkinson with Samuel Cooper in second place and Dan McGaughey in third.

In the 4.2 fleet, Sean Woodard took top honours, closely followed by Xinran Chen and Yikang Su in third. All three sailors were on 24 points!

In the 5.3 Silver fleet, Evie McLaughlin took the honours followed by Benjamin Jukes-Bennett and Marcus Howard in third.

The Bronze fleet finished with Maxi Tustain in pole position, then Benjamin Bradley, followed by Noah Sherrif.

Even though the level of competition is intense, the primary focus has always been centered around the enjoyment of sailing as a sport and the promotion of friendship and camaraderie across nations. We regularly see competitors from all around the world at different venues with this year’s entrants coming from Ireland, Great Britain, France, China, Macau and Republic of South Africa. The Topper fleet has historically always been a welcoming group of sailors and we hope that more nations will continue to arrive on the Topper scene in years to come.

The 2017 event has been a phenomenal success. Five perfect days of sailing, a display of the highest standard of sportsmanship and behaviour both on and off the water, and a willingness to help other competitors are some of the factors that make this event so noteworthy year on year. Finally, a big thank you to all of the sponsors, organisers, helpers and parents who helped make this event possible.
