The Mirror Class Association run two squads over the winter months one based in the North and one based in the South. These squads are aimed at sailors under 18 who want to improve their racing. The majority of the sailors are aged between 11 and 14, but a few join the squads as young as 8 years old, often as a crew then move onto helming. These squads are held over six weekend at a variety of different venues, which gives the sailors the opportunity to experience different conditions.
The squad qualifying events are held in September/October time, if you would like any further information about joining a winter squad next winter please visit the website.
Team Racing
Well done to all the Mirror sailors who participated in the Eric Twiname Team Racing event at Oxford SC. For many of the Mirror sailors it was the first time they had tried Team Racing, it tested
their rules knowledge to the limit, and their tactics improved immensely throughout the weekend,
great fun was had by everyone.
