The Topaz Taz is a perfect junior boat for beginners and improvers, taking one or two sailors. It can be sailed for fun, or seriously like a small Laser which is much closer to real sailing than the traditional Optimist.

The Topaz Taz, sailed by Francesco of FV Malcesine and others
Francesco puts the Topaz Taz though its paces on a warm day, including a capsize and recovery.
There's also a snap of two girls from Germany enjoying sailing together and a very (very) early photo of none other than Ciaran, one of our watersports instructors, who can also be seen sailing our Hobie Tiger (although there's probably 8 years between the photos)
Please note that our boat fleet while based on Toppers whole range often changes from year to year so please check availability with us. The larger Topaz Uno is also great for younger sailors and can be sailed single-handed or with two on board both with and without a jib.
