  • Cadet registration for Topper / Tera / Laser Training Weekend


This is our 1st  training weekend of the year and is aimed at older sailors who can sail a Topper. The minimum age for this weekend is 11 and the minimum weight is 35kgs.  You can book individual days rather than the whole weekend, the cost is £10 per day or £18 for both days.

We have no control on the weather so cadets will need appropriate clothing for the potential conditions, if you are unsure what you will need ask. Cadets that turn up with inadequate clothing may not be allowed to sail.

Note this is a non catered event, please bring your own packed lunch and lots of cake.

We will be running the following groups, subject to numbers and instructor availability:

  • Lake Topper: suitable for complete beginners, Cadets do not need their own boats for this group as we will be using the Club Quest and Toppers
  • Topper/Tera in the Hole: suitable for cadets that  have achieved Level 1 in Optimists, cadets will be working towards their Level 2 Badge. Cadets need their own boat  for the weekend.

  • Topper/Tera Tango suitable for cadets that  have achieved Level 2, cadets will be working towards their Level 3 Badge. Cadets need their own boat  for the weekend.
  • Topper/Tera MG This group will be lead by an RYA coach and will focus on developing racing skills, inclusion in this group is by invitation. Cadets must have their own boat to take part in this group
  • Cadets wanting to sail a Topper must be a minimum age of 11 and at least 35kgs for a Topper with a 4.2 rig.
    • Laser MG This group will be lead by an RYA coach and will focus on developing racing skills, inclusion in this group is by invitation. Cadets must have their own boat to take part in this group

    To make our training weekends  a success we need the parents of cadets to help out over the weekend. We have a range of duties to choose from, all the duties with the exception of the galley require parents/guardians to be willing to get wet to at least the waist (you will need suitable clothing not supplied) and you will be required to help launch/move boats around. Please complete the form with your preferred duty. 

    Please do not book places for cadets other than those you are guardians for. 

    Children under the age of 12 and those attending their first training event at Blackwater must have an adult on site at all times. 

    The cost of this weekends training is £10 per day or £18 for both days.
