2 K2O helms took part in the Topper Open last Sunday. It was a great day with a moderate breeze and 17 participants. The Topper is a great boat with a very friendly and active class association - a great choice for juniors wishing to progress.

Our annual Barts Bash race will take place as a handicap race at 13.30 on Saturday 16th September. It would be great to see as many sailors as possible from the club and K2O joining the race and the fundraising for this fantastic sailing charity.

The light airs gave the Topper helms the ideal conditions for practicing roll tacks and tight turns - have a look at the Midlands Topper Facebook page for some footage. Great to have the ITCA team back at Bartley.
