Are there any good Topper helms looking to transition to 420’s next season ? And do you need an experienced crew and maybe a boat ?

Lizzie Cattermole has now done a full year in 420’s and achieved some good race results. She is in year 10 at school and has 3 more years in the class. The aim next year is to campaign for a GBR squad place and to get to the Worlds at Rhode Island in the States.

We live in Hertfordshire, our local club is Grafham and our boat is 55472.

Lizzie’s older sister was an ex Topper helm btw, and she went on to win the world championships in 2013. She’s now finished her studies so is available for extra coaching help when we need her.

If this all sounds of interest, please contact Mike Cattermole on 0771 5812678. Or email me on
