The final meeting of this popular series was held at Warsash SC on the 23/24 Oct with two very contrasting days weather. Saturday's racing was abandoned because of extreme conditions but Sunday produced a perfect day with 12 boats competing in cold Autumn sunshine and good winds. The report of that meeting is available elsewhere. The other races in the series were at Bosham SC 12 June - 14 boats; Chichester YC 13 June - 13 boats; Poole YC 3 & 4 July - 13 boats; Itchenor SC 5 & 6 Sept - 37 boats; Hill Head SC 10 Oct - 14 boats. This represents a good and consistent turnout with the travelling sailors giving the home club sailors the chance to enjoy larger fleets and stiffer competition thereby encourage more interest in developing Mirror racing in those clubs.
