Topper Sailing Dinghy

The Topper sailing dinghy is a single-handed racing dinghy, built by Topper Sailboats. A fun and pretty much indestructible design, the Topper has been a family favourite for many generations, is perfect for kids and a greater starter dinghy. 

An Award winning One-Design, the Topper is also ideal for racing and comes complete with two rig options (sail sizes), a 4.2 and a larger 5.3. The Topper is fast, light and easy to right when capsized, it’s also simple to rig and maintain.

A popular international class, with a fantastic race circuit, there are approximately 50,000 Toppers world-wide. The Topper also forms part of the British Youth Sailing RYA recognised pathway to squad development.

A British design, the Topper was designed by Ian Proctor in 1977. The Topper is constructed of polypropylene, with an aluminium mast and boom. The Topper has a PY number of 1363.

For sailors by sailors. Whilst we appreciate fast cars, supercharged engines and break neck speeds, it’s harnessing the sheer awesomeness of what nature has to throw at us that we love best.

Dinghy sailing is a skill, a lifestyle and an identity. It’s something special, that few get to experience, love and cherish. From screaming reaches, great memories and company, to escapism, adventures and mishaps, sailing is something special, it’s unique and it’s what we live for.

We recognise that the wants and needs of dinghy sailors differ from other water sports. Thats why we’ve dedicated this website to you! And furthermore, as our way of giving back to the sport we love, it’s also free to use.
