Any participant who has not sailed a Topper or Tera before is required to chat through their suitability for this training with the QM team prior to booking on. For those who do not own a Topper or Tera, QM have a number of these boats available to hire at £15/session, which would need to be confirmed with the QM office prior to booking on to ensure availability.
