I would gladly pay (a bit) more to get some colour into a new Topper, or even just the sail.

Colourfull is out these days. Everything seems so corporate, dull Grey's, blacks, gone are the days of florescent pink kit.

I had a yellow one back in the 80's, I suspect 15141 has been consigned to the abandoned corner of  boat park somewhere.

Agree, a shame, especially sails, which could still be different.


bit of both i suspect  -how many toppers are they selling  new these days ?  (ironically their durability may actually count against them ) 

 , much the same as  the  very light grey  laser had  in the 90s  , and once plain  radial sails  were available

Does anyone know why you can only buy red Toppers and red/white/blue sails these days? To reduce costs maybe? Seems such a shame.
