No Irish Mirrors To Contest South African Dinghy Worlds

No Irish Mirrors To Contest South African Dinghy Worlds

#mirror – After a successful staging of the Mirror dinghy world Championships on Lough Derg in August 2013 the biennial championship is underway again this week but this time at a South African venue and sadly without any Irish boats racing.

After four races sailed the home entry Mirrorjuana sailed by defending champions Michaela and Ryan Robinson are leading after a long postponement to allow winds to settle. 

Two years ago the Lough Derg Yacht Club championships attracted 91 boats from seven countries. This week the Theewater Club hosts have an entry of 59–boats from five countries, including single entries from France and Japan. 

Having won the 2013 Worlds in style the African Mirror Champs Recalled their Lough Derg Victory for Afloat readers here.

The next big event on the Mirror dinghy calendar will be the UK Mirror National Championships from Saturday 15 August 2015 to Friday 21 August 2015.

The event will run alongside Abersoch Mirror Week and be hosted by South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club on the Irish Sea.
