Directory of everything Mirror
The Mirror is the World's most popular double handed sailing dinghy, With its low price, light and seaworthy design that is easy to sail, the Mirror quickly achieved its objectives, becoming the World's most popular double handed sailing dinghy. Probably responsible for introducing more people to the delights of sailing than any other design, some have even gone onto win Olympic medals, the latest being Paul Goodison taking Gold in China. The Mirror is a real proper little boat, with its deep 'sit-in' cockpit, that inspires confidence for sailors of all ages and abilities, easy to sail but a challenge to sail well. In 2008 the Mirror is just as relevant and popular as ever, with regular updates to keep the class modern and fresh.
