Mirror Open at Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club

Mirror dinghies launching from a slipway in misty weather

The scene on Sunday was one of people and boats emerging from deep winter hibernation. They were greeted by a light mist ready for the the first of the Mirror Northern Travellers.

Nine sets of red sails, including one visitor, made their way down to the waters edge with some keen and excited helms and crews. The plan was to join in with the club's slow handicap fleet two minutes after the fast fleet started. With the fleet chomping at the bit, however, they took off early on the one minute gun causing some confusion!
