2014 Topper Coaching Day

  • There will be an official ITCA coaching day at IBRSC on 4th Oct. 

    Open Training is run locally by the ITCA at clubs over the South East Area and supported by a grant from the RYA.  The Topper is an RYA "pathway" class, which means it is recognised as developing the technical, physical and racing skills necessary to succeed at Youth and Olympic level.  
    Flip and Charlotte, who coach the RYA SE Zone Squad in 2013/14 will be assisted by a team of experienced coaches on these days. Our training days are open to all Topper sailors, from improvers to advanced racers so long as sailors are competent to sail a triangular course and are members of ITCA come and join in.
    The cost of Open Training is around £25 per day. Places are available on a first come first served basis via this link. Note this link will be shut a week prior to the event so that resources can be confirmed, so enter quickly!
