2003 Southern Area Championships at Poole YC, 19th/20th July

A fleet of Mirrors racing downwind with spinnakers flying in a solid breeze

Poole Yacht Club had a fantastic turnout of 40 Mirrors for the Southern Championships. Twenty of these boats also competed in the South Traveller which consisted of the three race results on the Saturday. All races were sailed as Triangle - Sausage courses throughout the weekend.

A shifty breeze made tactical decisions difficult on the first three races on Saturday. But by the end of the days racing Dan and James Ellis were winning the Southerns, whilst Craig and Mitchell Bond from Brightlingsea had won the South Traveller, closely followed in 2nd place by Gareth Evans and James Silcock.

Sunday bought more pressure with a Force 4-5 due to eager competitors on the start line black flag was introduced. Craig and Michell Bond won Race 4 and 5 whilst Guy and Joe wilkins won race 6.

A huge thank-you go to our sponsors, LDC Racing of Eastleigh, Force 4, Bobs Boat Shop and Piplers of Poole who donated some fabulous prizes.

Editor's note: I am indebted to Mike Millard of Poole YC for digging through his extensive collection of photos to find the ones from 2003 shown here.
