At the RYA Dinghy Show on the 3rd March, Topper International officially announced that they will be encouraging even more youngsters to take to the water by donating 10, 4.2 sails to the RYA OnBoard scheme (OB). The sails will be used by young sailors across the country who are learning the sport through schools, sailing clubs, training centres and youth groups with RYA OnBoard.

Jon Manners from Topper International said: 'After last year’s success we are delighted to be supporting OnBoard and grassroots sailing once again with this donation. Hopefully we will see even more young sailors out in the Topper fleet in 2013'.

'OnBoard Operations Officer Cat Ferguson said: 'We are hugely grateful to Topper for the sails again this year which will benefit our OB clubs, centres and sailors. We have received such great feedback from those who received them last year and I know we will have lots of youngsters who will be really excited to get out on the water with their brand new sails'.
