The TOPAZ SYSTEM comes with a choice of rig options so the boat can be set up to suit you. The TOPAZ SYSTEM hull comfortably holds two people of any size so can be sailed singlehanded or as a two person dinghy. The TOPAZ ‘UNO PLUS’ is the most popular rig option and one of our best sellers. The UNO PLUS offers great value as a simple one or two person boat. It is easy to handle and very robust. This rig option provides a great introduction to sailing as well as being an ideal multi-purpose family dinghy. The TOPAZ ‘RACE PLUS’ rig offers extra performance with the use of a more powerful 6.9m2 fully-battened Mylar mainsail. The TOPAZ ‘RACE X’ rig is for more experienced sailors featuring the addition of a 9.0m2 asymmetric gennaker. The Yachts and Yachting test concludes that the Race X will deliver “seriously fast sailing for the club sailor right through to a professional sailor. The asymmetric system is simple, easy to use and easy to rig and takes the boat to yet another level only found in boats costing twice the retail price”. The TOPAZ ‘TRES’ rig offers a great introduction to trapeze and asymmetric sailing. The Yachts and Yachting test states “Once the kite is up, the Tres fairly shoots away. Reaching performance is truly in the apparent wind sailing league”.
