This year’s Mirror World Championships in Sligo Yacht Club have been postponed due to the ongoing travel restrictions around the pandemic.

“The backdrop of COVID-19 presented so many challenges in terms of the organising and logistics for such a large scale event,” says Mirror Sailing Ireland’s Emmet Duffy.

“With sailors, their families and friends expected from many countries, travel restrictions and uncertainty would have limited participants.

“A Mirror Worlds needs the global Mirror family from both near and afar to make it such.”

Duffy adds: “I know that behind the scenes, Sligo Yacht Club and Irish Sailing have put in a lot of work and planning to date which will still benefit the rescheduled event.

“We now watch for restrictions to ease and for sailing, be it training and events to happen again soon. The plan is to get our own regional events in over the summer and we will have an events calendar out soon.”
