Northern Area Championships 2001 5/6 May at South Shields SC

Twelve Mirrors took part in the event. No less than 9 were GB team members. Five races, 4 to count. The constant NE wind force 2 to 3 with a spring tide made the event an exercise in tide and current. The fleet was divided into those who used the tide to advantage and those who did not. It was chocolates for the over thirties. Guy Wilkins and Alan Bennett were never to be challenged after race I and 2 it was clear that the championship was going to go to one of these experienced sailors.

Northern Area Championships, Hollingworth Lake SC, 6 & 7th May 2000

Five races with one discard. Wild blustery weather with some sunshine and capsizes galore. A lovely setting and fantastic hospitality, with the Club volunteers working so hard to make it a memorable weekend.

Wind Around The Clock - Northern Area Championships 1973

Sailed at Ullswater Yacht Club on 23rd & 24th June.

SATURDAY — overcast sky, winds light and variable. The practice race and the first race were in the afternoon. The wind was generally northerly but very variable; runs turned into reaches and reaches into beats with bewildering rapidity. Young crews were told to ‘SIT STILL!’ while boats waited becalmed wondering where the wind would come from next.
