Mirror Sailing Ireland Seeks Dinghies For Charter Or Sale

Mirror Worlds Sligo 2021 may be some time away yet, but as Mirror Sailing Ireland writes, for those looking to travel from abroad early planning is necessary.

To make the journey easier and to entice more to our shores to participate, the availability of Mirrors to charter would be very appealing.

However, there is a shortage of good second-hand Mirrors within Ireland — many Mirrors are sitting in garages and gardens over the last number of years that are potentially race-ready.

For those looking to travel from afar, chartering a Mirror would be more cost effective than transporting by container. It also gives the opportunity for entrants from other countries that typically are not on the Mirror Worlds scene.

Within Ireland also there is demand for Mirrors for sale as new faces look to enter the Mirror fleet.

It would be great to see these boats back on the water and encouraging sailors to embrace the spirit of the Mirror dinghy.

If you are interested in chartering or indeed selling your Mirror, contact Emmet Duffy at [email protected] or +353 86 852 3230 for further details.
