69776 - Pthreetle

Pink wooden Mirror dinghy almost airborne in a big wave

1996

Wood kit built by Stephen Heppell on Malcolm Goodwin's jig.

This was the third of four mirrors built by Stephen Heppell . Stephen takes up the story "The first one - a standard Bell built kit, was Pootle. Then came Juliette Heppell's fast blue boat Ptwootle (two, get it?) which was spectacularly fast upwind and she sailed with her sister and then with single handed sailor Hannah Stodel, then came the pink Pthreetle sailed by Melissa Heppell who went onto 470s from there (super fast boat won lots also with next owner Emma Barry) and then finally Phourtle which was Toby Heppell's boat - he went onto 49ers and is now at Yachts and Yachting of course. All Brightlingsea boats back in the days when the town council created a Mirror Millennium garden in honour of the town's Mirror sailors!".
