'Barbarian II' is now for sale for £500 and ready to sail!

We are very sorry to sell our Mirror dinghy, but the family have grown up and moved away! We would like someone else to have the pleasure of sailing. Our family have sailed for pleasure on the quarry at West Hythe, in the sea off Folkestone and Hythe and on lakes in France and Wales. We have all had great fun. It is in very good condition and has been used many times, but not in recent years, when it has been stored in our garage.  The present owner purchased the craft in 1989, so 11 years after registration. No racing history available.
