Cian Jones at the recent Topper National Championships


Three sailors from the RCYC Topper fleet travelled to Wicklow Sailing club last weekend. They attended a one day training session on Saturday, followed on Sunday by a Topper Traveller event.

Our sailors were joined by thirty seven sailors from the North and South of Ireland. Cian Jones, Maeve O’ Sullivan and Lia Berkery Kelly all launched for racing on Sunday in very light conditions. Unfortunately wind conditions did not improve and race one had to be abandoned.

Conditions improved for the next two races, permitting all sailors to put some scores on the board. Maeve recorded her best result to date for a national event finishing 10th overall and 3rd U14. Cian sailed keeping Maeve in sight finishing only a couple of places behind, an excellent result.

Lia is now finding her Topper feet and is showing great improvement. Well done sailors!

Congratulations also to Mary Jones who successfully completed her maiden voyage towing a trailer full of Toppers!
