Having been placed 1st and 2nd in the Northern Travellers at the weekend, Robert Richardson & Sandy Simpson, along with the Shilling family, decided to stay on for the remainder of the Bass Regatta Week resulting in some good racing between the two boats. But it was Wednesday’s pursuit race which caused all to take notice.
The Endeavour Trophy is an annual event that brings together all the National Champions from the different fleets that compete in their own National Championships. This year Reg from Beaver SC won the Mirror National Championship at Brixham to qualify for this prestigious event. Twenty Champions came together sailing a new boat, the Topper Argo, so the ‘playing fields were level’! It was going to be down to the skills of the sailors in the conditions that presented themselves over the weekend. The forecast was for good winds on Saturday but heavy winds on the Sunday. It wasn’t wrong!

There is a great report on Abersoch Mirror week 2014 on the Yachts & Yachting website. With 47 entries from 18 clubs travelling from as far as Kent and Scotland, Abersoch Mirror Week remains a firm family favourite and, once again, the largest Mirror regatta in the UK.
Next year the South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club are hosting the UK Mirror Nationals alongside Abersoch Mirror week, on a seperate course, further offshore. So there will be no place better for Mirror sailors of all abilities in 2015 than at Abersoch from August 15th to 21st.
