Mirror Fleet

It has been a succesful year so far for the Mirror fleet at South Staffs.

The club was represented at the World Championships by Alison Norbury and three of our younger partnerships have made it into the Zone Squad. So congratulations to Chloe and Izzy , Evie and Annie, Scott and Adam.

The Mirror is currently experiencing a resurgence of interest at South Staffs, having once been the most popular Junior boat sailed. The club now owns 3 mirrors, all with the new one-piece masts.

It is an ideal boat for our Junior Sailors to learn the skills of helming and crewing, progressing onto flying the spinnaker; it is an excellent junior boat for those that don't fancy sailing on their own.

There's a regular Sunday morning turnout of up to 4 or 5 Mirrors for coaching and racing.  Its a fun boat to sail and is a very friendly class.
