Topper Omega Boat   2018-06-25     Jack Moss

Hi All So that you are all fully informed, your Shoestring Committee have decided to purchase a Topper Omega for 3276€ from RS Sailing in UK. The boat has had minimal use and has been stored in suitable storage under cover for the past few years. In essence we are buying a 6 year old boat in virtually new condition for less than half price. Our only problem left to resolve is getting the boat from a Sailing Club in Madrid, to where it is being delivered, to Los Alcazares which should happen mid-July. If anyone can help with a practical solution I would be grateful to hear from you. I wish to acknowledge with thanks the huge effort that Ingo Wilson has put in on our behalf in securing this boat. Thank you Ingo. To find out more about the Topper Topaz Omega, simply Google www.toppersailboats.com. I hope this is of interest to you. Best wishes and continued happy sailing. Jack
