#Mirror - Eoghan Duffy of Lough Ree Yacht Club and crew Cathal Langan of Clontarf Yacht and Boat Club/Sutton Dinghy Club are on a mission to make their mark at the Mirror Worlds in Australia this winter.

Their preparation included packing their boat and bags straight after achieving second place in the Mirror Westerns at the Double Ree last week, and travelling out to Ullswater Yacht Club for the UK Mirror Sailing Nationals this past weekend.

Duffy and Langan had a good, steady performance with their boat A Close Shave throughout the event in the Lake District, and return home today (Monday 30 July) with a second in the youth category and 13th place overall in a fleet of 44 boats.

The dynamic duo are training hard to fly the flag for Ireland and will be seeing in the New Year at the Mirror Worlds in Sydney from Monday 31 December.

And they could potentially be travelling with a bigger Irish contingent as Mirror fleet numbers have seen a slight increase this year, perhaps thanks to new initiatives like the Double Ree.
