With reference to the latest COVID-19 announcement, the Government has moved all of England under lockdown. The lockdown states that people must not travel unless absolutely necessary. On that basis, we are asking members not to sail the Tops’l boats. We are looking forward to getting back out on the water as soon as it is safe to do so.
Tops’l is a remarkable cruising club. For someone like me who is hoping to progress to Yachtmaster, I can kill two birds with one stone by getting the miles and qualifying passages whilst having a holiday and some fun with other members. Two other distinct plusses are the sheer quality and condition of the yachts (Carina was in fine fettle for the trip) and also the mentoring from longstanding members like Steve, Mike and Peter. I learnt a huge amount in the week as indeed I did last year in Devon with Mike and Adrian.
