A healthy fleet of thirty two Mirrors from as far afield as Falmouth, Essex and Shetland congregated at Annandale Sailing Club in Dumfries and Galloway for their Scottish Championship on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July.

The diverse fleet included several members of the World Championship squad as well as many Open Meeting first timers, however competition was close and interesting throughout. Despite the enticing football match the Race Officer was determined to complete the three scheduled races on Saturday, a decision that was justified when Sunday dawned windless.

The Scottish Mirror Championships were held at Helensburgh Sailing Club on the Firth of Clyde, 14/15 June 2014. The event was combined with the annual Scottish Youth Regatta which was hosting the Scottish Optimist and Topper fleets.

Anticipated attendance of Mirrors from northern England did not materialise – in one case at least due to a car breakdown leaving a young crew and helm very downcast. However, 3 visiting boats from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Thurso arrived on Saturday to join the two Helensburgh boats. So the fleet comprised 2 gaff and 3 bermudan rigs on boats ranging from a relatively new Winder to a restored 1963 vintage.

Scottish Championships 2013 - Notice of Race

Mirror dinghies racing at Annandale

Scottish Mirror Championships will be held on 29-30 June 2013 at Annandale Sailing Club in the Scottish Borders.

The Scottish Championships are a competitive, but above all friendly gathering of Mirror dinghies from around Scotland and beyond. Trophies to be competed for will include the Overall Championships, Single-hander, Masters, Youth, Junior, and Team. The team trophy is awarded to the highest placed team of 3 boats from the same club. In recent years there has only been one team entry, so why not persuade some other Mirror dinghies in your club to come along and have a go. You can read reports on previous years events elsewhere on this website.
