With sailors coming from all over Ireland and a favourable weather forecast, Irish Topper agent Viking Marine is sponsoring this weekend's Winter Youth sailing event hosted by the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.

With up to 50 young sailors expected, it clearly shows the popularity of this pathway boat especially amongst sailors transitioning out of the Optimist class, Viking's Ian O'Meara told Afloat.ie.

"Up to 50 young sailors expected"

‘We have had great success with all boats across the Topper range and Topper are a world-class company to work with,’ O Meara says. ‘Great boats, great back up and service and constant innovation as seen with the new 6:1 kicker upgrade kit. Sailors are loving this recent innovation from Topper giving the kicker far greater power’.

Viking Marine is open all weekend with sales assistants Conor and Saoirse on hand to assist competitors and families in need of Topper equipment and kit

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
