Midland Area Championship Reports

2002 Midland Area & National Singlehanded Championships Shustoke SC 14th & 15th Sept

A total of 60 Mirrors turned out for the Midland Championships in very shifty winds. This was the fourth and final National Squad selector event and competition was intense amongst the junior sailors. National Squad coach Matt McGovern and the RYA High Performance Manager Duncan Truswell were on the water, talent spotting for the squad amongst the fleet of 38 boats on the Double Handed course. Another great win for Stuart Bithell and Holly Scott, who are shortly off to the Worlds in Tasmania as part of the UK Youth/Junior team.
