Mirror dinghy is a hit in U.S.

American sailing enthusiasts are showing great interest in the Mirror Dinghy at the Greater Long Island Boat Show, now being held at Westbury, New York. A picture of the popular boat in on the cover of the show guide which says: “All the way from England to Long Island comes exclusively the Mirror eleven foot sailboat.”

The dinghy has been compared favourably with other small sailboats because of its flotation tanks which make it virtually unsinkable.
