A shout out to any London or Surrey based Mirror sailors that may want to join us at Island Barn Sailing Club which is in West Molesey. We are 2 ex Mirror circuit sailors from the 90s who are now sailing with our sons most Sundays.
The weekend was based on strategy. From a helm's perspective I feel like my knowledge on shifts have improved and I need to improve on my lay lines. On the first day we started off with some gybing and tacking on the whistle then went into some races concentrating on strategy upwind and downwind and we played the game "Bob",
In the third of the mirror training course, the sailors were sailing at Draycote Water SC, where, unlike the first two weeks, there was a decent breeze. The three pairs of sailors arrived at the club bright and early to have a brilliant weekend of learning taught by Niki Birrell, the two-time Paralympic medallist.
