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.
