The Organising Committee still have one brand new Mk 3 Mirror (never been in the water) with new sails available for charter at the Worlds. If anyone wants to make a last minute decision to attend, this boat is available at a cost of AUD2,000 incl sails or about GBP1,140. We will be offering this boat to Australian sailors if we have not received any interest from an overseas entrant by next Monday 26 November 2018.
