Friday was the start of the journey for four Mirror dinghies from the UK heading to Australia for the 18th Mirror Dinghy World Championships. Although in reality that journey started several years ago, with the top team competing in events and training hard since the last World Championships hosted by Restronguet Sailing Club.

Thanks to support from Cummins Corporation local office, based in Daventry, the team have been able to ship their boats alongside the engine and generator equipment going out to Sydney. Much to the amusement of the loading team at Heathrow.

If you have a firm interest in attending this event, and have not already posted something on the UK Mirror Class Facebook page, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name and number of boats you are intending to take.
