2013/14 States Round 1 (Races 1-4)

Posted by Rik on October 30, 2013 at 9:55 AM

Seventeen Mirrors contested the first heat of the 2013-14 State Championships at Maylands Yacht Club on Sunday 17th October. The warm weather was a welcome change but the very light conditions in the morning made for an interesting first race. Half the fleet got away in a 'gust' of 1 or 2 knots while the rest were left wallowing in dead calm. The fickle patchy wind meant that the second half of the fleet were timed out finishing more that 15 minutes after the first boat.

A long early l...

Radical new mainsail for the Mirror?

Posted by Rik on December 11, 2012 at 11:05 AM

Geoff Wilson has been working with Hill Sails in Perth on a radical design of the mainsail.

The modern design based on 49ers NS 14’s etc will help keep the class thoroughly modern as well as keeping it attractive to younger sailors.   The prominent roach will assist in square run speed. In a recent test in only 4 knots of breeze the boat reached 2.5 knots.

It will rock the traditionalists as did the Bermuda rig did but that change probably saved the class.  The mor...
