The Regatta took place from 30 July to 8 August and, as lockdown restrictions had been lifted, it attracted around 120 boats sailing within ten classes. The combined Mirror, Topper, Tera fleet was the largest with some 35 entrants of which 21 were Mirrors with visitors trailing their boats from a variety of sailing clubs.
St Mary's Loch SC are holding a Mirror Open Meeting as part of their Annual Regatta, which included the Scottish Enterprise Championships, on 28th & 29th August. The Notice of Race has been published and can be downloaded via the link.
The event is specifically over the bank holiday weekend so that visitors can travel from around the UK. On the Saturday night we host a social dinner and Ceilidh dance for racers and their supporters.
The Mirror family learned this morning of the death of Norm Deane. The notice in the Hobart Mercury records a loving family man, just shy of 95 years old, a Member of the Order of Australia. But we need to record publicly the debt we as Mirror sailors owe him. At the 4th World Mirror Championships in Sligo in 1987 a committee with Norm as President set about the task of making the Mirror a truly one design boat with International status, with a constitution and Rules of Measurement acceptable to the IYRU. International status was formally granted in November 1987. Norm remained active in the International executive until 2008.
