About Us

Welcome to


This is a privately run, non-commercial,  Website. We have no links to either Topper International or any sailing club although Topper personnel have been helpful in responding to the odd query and a number of Xenon owners at Bewl Valley SC have provided advice.
The site is run and contributed to by Topaz Xenon dinghy owners for the benefit of Xenon owners. The purpose of the website is to gather and disseminate a wide range of information relating to the sailing and maintenance of this dinghy.

You already have full access to all the information on this site and therefore you do not need to login to view information. However a login is required if you wish to contribute by way of a Comment, Forum or blog etc. This site welcomes views and contributions.
The information and guidance is given in good faith but this site accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of the information so provided. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the ability to tackle any maintenance tasks.

The authors sail at Bewl Valley Sailing Club and consequently a number of photos and videos used on this site feature the large Bewl Valley reservoir.

Comments and contributions are very much welcomed but to protect this site from abuse the comments are moderated. This may result in a short delay before the comments are accepted and published. Use the Contact Us facility if you wish to provide images, have a video that you consider will be of interest on this site or wish to raise any issue with us. If you have an article related to the Xenon that you would like published please let us know, particularly any guidance on how to get the maximum performance from this dinghy.


We are happy to publish details of Xenon events. Use the Contact Us facility to provide details.

Finally, many thanks to those who have already provided contributions / advice /photos.
