Toppers British Nationals

August 7, 2016 - August 12, 2016

International Topper Class Association

Registration 1pm to 5pm on Saturday 6th August and sailing from 7th to the 12th August inclusive.

The British Nationals will be held at North Berwick – just a short trip on the train into the centre of Edinburgh which will be great for those not sailing as the Edinburgh Fringe is on at the same time as the Championships.

If you haven’t been there before, here are a few things that might be useful in the early planning stages:

  • As a small, beautiful town, parking is restricted so if you are looking to rent a property, try and book one in the actual town to save you having to find somewhere to park every day (this can be a challenge).
  • The nearest campsite is Tantallon. It is situated right on the coast, has stunning views, but is a cycle ride away from the town centre.
  • Bikes are a good thing to have with you. There is a cycle hire shop in the centre of town (more details to follow) if you don’t want to strap bikes to boat trailers.
  • The club is really welcoming but small so there will be limited changing facilities and no real showers so come prepared for this (another reason to book accommodation in town).

There will be 3 fleets again so there will be something suitable for all – no matter what their level of racing skill. If you know someone new to the sport, let them know about the fun to be had and encourage them to join!
