The event took place at Itchenor Sailing Club over the weekend 2nd/3rd July. Jonathan Davies, the Mirror Class Captain, and his team made everyone welcome on a gloriously sunny day with light winds. Over a third of the competitors were local with many juniors participating.

The first race saw the tide still coming in which made it tricky getting out to the start line and then a challenge not to be swept too far behind the start line. Kim May-Papailiou and Amy Sparks got to the windward mark 1st and held their lead throughout the race. The tide changed direction towards the end of the first race which called for some new tactics. 2nd place was taken by Rosie and Madeleine Watkins. 3rd was awarded to Nigel Thomas and 6yr old Helena Watkins.

This was also a coached Open supported by RYA Scotland. This meant that the second 50% of the fleet were given guidance and support both on and off the water to help them improve their racing skills.
