The 205–boat fleet included sailors from seven different countries. Connor Quinn (Carlingford Lough YC) finished 16th and Peter Gilmore (Strangford Lough Club) finished 19th.
The British National Championships is immediately followed by the World Championships at the same venue to give Topper sailors two back-to-back weeks of racing.
The World Championships will consist of two ISAF-recognised World Championship Series – in the main 5.3 fleet and the smaller 4.2 fleet. Running concurrently with the ISAF World Championships will be the Intercontinental Cup for lady sailors. More here
