Ullswater Yacht Club in the Lake District provided the stunning holiday venue and excellent, family friendly, facilities for this years Mirror Nationals from Tuesday 24th to Friday 27th July. 44 boats entered, comprising 24 family teams and a staggering 62 related sailors. A fantastic mixture of adult + child teams competing against teams of older children, and it was a close run thing. Terrific to have an International flavour with Eoghan Duffy & Cathal Langan from Ireland and Alle & Anna Roodbergen from the Netherlands racing. Great to see a spread of experience representing 18 clubs from across the UK from sailors competing in their first Nationals to seasoned hands such as Olympic medallist Simon Hiscocks sailing with his son Louis.
