Excitement continues to build at Royal Cork and ITCA Worlds as the Topper World Championships 2023 counts down to the week of 24th July.
Organisation commenced back in November 2022 and the Royal Cork Yacht Club Topper Worlds Committee has been hard at work since then, meeting regularly drawing on the fantastic expertise of our staff and volunteers to make this a landmark event in the 2023 calendar.
Young sailors and their families from all over the world will be congregating in Crosshaven in droves, entries are huge at nearly 260 with only 40 places remaining. When the opening parade commences on the Sunday the flags of many nations will be proudly displayed as the entrants make their way to Crosshaven house to be officially welcomed to Cork.
Royal Cork is proud to be associated with ITCA and this vibrant sailing class that takes children from all backgrounds and cultures and provides them with competition, camaraderie, fun and inclusivity, as they start their lives in this fantastic sport.
Situated in the environment of our beautiful Cork Harbour and following national and regional events to seed the fleet. The races will be run over the course of the five days, with multiple fleets, and many staggered starts, our expert International Race Team will take charge to ensure fair and equitable racing. The focus of all racing at Royal Cork is always on safe, competitive racing, and we hope to provide good memories that will last a lifetime.
Once ashore, the fun doesn’t stop there, for sailors and families alike, the emphasis on togetherness continues with evening games, good food and entertainment to ensure a good time will be had by all.
You can always be sure of finding a warm welcome here at Royal Cork and we look forward to seeing you for what promises to be a wonderful event.
