Following from last 2 years of this highly successful event,  the  Topper Challenge will again be hosted by the Club on the 16 / 17 May 2020 – in fact is was so good the ITCA Ireland have decided to run 2 a Northern and Southern event! Well done Team DSC!

Last year saw 90 or so starts across the whole fleet with short close racing on a race track in Donaghadee Bay. This allows for spectacular viewing either from the clubhouse or the promenade.

An event where consistency is the key to success, boats will be split into flights, not teams and every sailor is competing for their place in Sunday’s Gold, Silver & Bronze fleets.

It promises to be a fun filled weekends racing & something very different to the normal weekend championship. Numbers will be limited and entries must be booked & paid for via the link below.
