The Mirror National Championships held in Mullaghmore, Co. Sligo last weekend were won by Ben Graf and Daniel Smyth.

Graf adds the title to the RS Feva National Championship title won earlier in the summer with Oscar Lubliner.

Second was Eoghan Duffy and Cathal Langan. Third place Ellen O'Dwyer and Mia Canham. 

Conditions varied over the the three-day from moderate to very heavy on Saturday to light on Sunday.

In promising news for the class, 22 boats took part in the largest national championships held in many years. It follows the trend of increasing numbers in the Mirror class for both regional, club and National events. There has also been an increase of bronze fleets sailors travelling to events. Many of the helms are as young as twelve years old.
