Ania - I've copied your message here below for convenience


Hi everyone, I haven't been in the mirrors for a while now but recently at a sailing school on Brownsea Island where I volunteer, we found an old mirror and it's been assigned to me as my summer project to return it to it's former glory, given my history of mirror sailing.

The sailing school is a registered charity called Harbour Challenge which gives opportunities to a wide variety of clientele including under-privileged children and youths with behavioural difficulties.

Basically this is an appeal to all those of you who have spare bits and bobs lying around that you can spare for a good cause, to kit out this mirror for the benefit of those who can't afford their own boats.

I've thouroughly gone over the mirror and it's structurally sound just with bits missing, so if you have any of the following and are willing to either give us a discount, or donate it to the charity then we would be eternally grateful!! It doesn't have to be up to racing standard, just safe and simple for the kids.

- General sheets and halyards, especially spinnaker related

- Reaching hooks, and similar cleats for halyards on the mast

- Pole ring (as in the one 1/3 of the way up the mast)

- End-to-end pole (or suggestions on where we can find a cheap one)

- Spinnaker shoot and sock

- Jawed cleats for under the bench

- Swivelling pulleys

- Ratchet block.. not an essential

- Small pulleys for kite sheets

- Shroud plates to replace old school system

- Anything else lying around unused that could be useful for us!


I know this is a bit cheeky, but I remember from my mirror days always having loads of random stuff like this shoved in the garage and in various toolboxes that I was unlikely to ever use - just remember, it's for a good cause!

We have very limited funds, as a charity, so thought we would appeal here first before shopping for stuff, anything you can donate would be very highly appreciated, regardless of condition, it all helps!

Please call me or email me if you can help at all or have any advice.

Thanks, Ania Booth
