The weather was ideal for the last of the season’s Topper Travellers hosted by Killyleagh Yacht Club on 2nd October 16, with a light breeze and a fleet of around 40 overall assembled. This fleet included six Topper 4.2, the smaller sail version of the boat, who uses a shorter course.. After a wind shift, the forecast South Easterly settled in and the course was laid after a short delay. Three races were successfully completed on a trapezoidal course and the sailors returned to shore for the prize giving.
East Down Yacht Club was represented by the Jennings family and by the Briggs family making five youth sailors in total, plus the support of three RIBs and safety boat qualified crews.
A great event run by Killyleagh Yacht Club – many thanks.
