Congratulations to the British Sailing Team on their performance at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
I've recently been told that Mirror sail number have now gone through the 71,000 barrier with Winder boats building 71000 at the end of 2020 and 71001 earlier this year.
A camera has been found on a mountain in North Wales. It contains a number of photographs of a Mirror Dinghy with a sail number 3770. If this is your camera, please contact Llangollen Police station. Reference number with North Wales Police lost and found is 1538154206.
Fernhust Books have updated 'The Mirror Book - Mirror sailing from start to finish' and the new edition will be launched at the Southampton Boat Show on Friday 14th September on the ChartCo stand (J052) at 2.30pm.
The UK Mirror Class Association have contributed to this update and it is endorsed by Dave Wade, double Mirror National Champion, who says: “Armed with this book, your understanding of Mirror sailing techniques will grow, and your results will improve. I thoroughly recommend it.”
Packed with practical advice and illustrated with step-by-step photographs, this book teaches you how to sail the UK's most iconic and best loved dinghy. Learn all the essentials, form sailing theory and rigging to faster upwind and downwind sailing. Peter Aitken, the UK National Mirror Coach in 2008 and Tim Davidson, a successful racer, reveal the basics and show how to outsmart the opposition. This book includes Bermuda and Gunter rigs, centre mainsheets & flyaway pole systems.
