The Rise, Fall and Rise Again of Bassenthwaite’s Mirror Fleet

A blue GRP Mirror dinghy racing towards the camera with another Mirror in the background

In my role of Press & PR officer at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club I have been collecting the Newsletters from years gone by.   We started out producing an annual publication in 1995 and gave it the title of Foxy Tales. This came from the Club’s fox emblem which, in turn, stemmed from the Club being in the close vicinity of the birthplace of the legendary fox hunter John Peel .   You will have heard of the ditty; Do you ken John Peel with his coat so grey..... I feel sure.
