After discussion with the sailing committee I'm afraid we aren't going to be able to run the Dee Mirror Open on September 23rd. As the team we had hoped would run the event and a number of the competitors are now attending a Scottish Dart 18 event. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. This year has been somewhat hectic with the hosting of the Dart 18 Nationals.

A blue Mirror dinghy sailed by father & son

What a fantastic event, two Mirror championships back-to-back, 51 entries in each event, 6 countries sailing in the Worlds & all happening on the beautiful sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, near Falmouth, with some typically varied Cornish weather and lots of wind. Competitors ages ranged from 6  to 78, 75% of the competitors were children, and the top 3 boats in each event was sailed by a parent & offspring with the youngster crewing, showing once again what a great little boat the Mirror is for introducing children into sailing and racing.

Three Mirror dinghies racing under spinnaker

Day 5 of the Gul Mirror Worlds, only one more race and the Cornish weather was a bit more like it with a moderate, but shifty wind and sunny intervals. The first attempt at getting Race 12 away failed when, with about 2 minutes to go, a large hole developed near the Committee Boat, and the wind picked up & shifted hard left at the pin end.

A white Mirror dinghy leading the fleet under spinnakes

The cornish weather served up sunshine and, early on, showers with a strong, gusty westerly wind for Day 4. With only 3 races remaining, the Race Committee decided on two today, leaving one for tomorrow.

Race 10 got away cleanly under a 'P'  flag and using a triangle-sausage-triangle course (harrah!). The strong gusty wind and a bit of a chop made for conditions that were less than comfortable for some in the fleet.  The spinnaker reaches were very exciting and even some of the heavier crews who chose to fly spinnakers lost out when they lost control in a mega-gust.
