69943 - Phourtle

A blue wooden Mirror dinghy with a blue gunter mast racing to windward with a bunch of other Mirrors1998

Wood hull built by Stephen Heppell on the Malcolm Goodwin's jig.

This was the fourth of four mirrors built by Stephen Heppell . Stephen takes up the story "The first one - a standard Bell built kit, was Pootle. Then came Juliette Heppell's fast blue boat Ptwootle (two, get it?) which was spectacularly fast upwind and she sailed with her sister and then with single handed sailor Hannah Stodel, then came the pink Pthreetle sailed by Melissa Heppell who went onto 470s from there (super fast boat won lots also with next owner Emma Barry) and then finally Phourtle which was Toby Heppell's boat - he went onto 49ers and is now at Yachts and Yachting of course. All Brightlingsea boats back in the days when the town council created a Mirror Millennium garden in honour of the town's Mirror sailors!".
