Navigate to the Topper World Championships Event  )

Click on the Online Registration link in either the 4.2 or 5.3 Class.

Add Boat to Regatta screen:  Fill in the Name of boat (if available), Nationality and Boat Number. Use the 5 digit Topper Sail Number, not the Championship number.

Add Helmsman screen:  Fill in the Name, Date of Birth, Club, Sex, Nationality, email and phone number.  A National Authority Card Number is necessary only for Italian sailors. Tick the boxes below and ‘Submit.’  For some reason I got an error message at this stage which states:  Person 10838 xxx; Error occurred, boat not found.  But when I checked the Boat was added to the list, so not to worry.

Go to the entry list:

Click on the Name (country/sail no) of your boat (second column)  (not the helmsman name).  At the bottom of the boat’s page, you will see a link to “Pay Now”. 

If you cannot see the 'Pay Now' link - please contact the Secretary -  .  It would be very helpful if you could note the sailor name, sail number, and the contents of the 'status' column from the entry page.
