A great event with 86 Mirrors from UK, Ireland, Holland and Sweden. Team GBR was really strong with 43 boats supported on and off the water by National Squad coaches Peter Aitken and Matt McGovern. Medemblik is a lovely picturesque port with canals, sailing barges and pretty houses and the Dutch hospitality was fantastic.
On Saturday 4th August. we set sail for the European Championships at Troon, Scotland. l was convinced I was going to win — so the rest is worth reading! Bowling merrily up the M6 we were overhauled by Bill and Ken Webber with their brand new boat 'Slithy Tove'. I felt sorry to see them so happy, wasn‘t I going to beat them!
