Topper Taz Race Sailing Dinghy.
Both our sons learned to sail independently on these boats, they are great fun and instill confidence very quickly.
I would highly recommend the Taz, as it has several important benefits over the older style Optimist as a sailing trainer.
Ben at 24kgs could right the boat from a capsize in most wind strengths and climb into the open stern without drama - This keeps his Mum on the bank happy too !
Also the Taz can be progressively reefed to allow for wind conditions on the day.
The Taz can be sailed on the Main sail or with Main & Jib (included) with one or two children or adult and a child.
The boat is in very good overall condition in the special edition hull colour scheme. It has just a few of the usual marks and scuffs on the bottom, that all plastic boats get.
There are none of the big chips or chunks out of the rudder blade or daggerboard you tend to get on some hard used or ex centre boats, in fact they show little wear at all. The dinghy is in full ready to use order, and will give the new owner much fun.
