A great little dinghy for learning to sail, learning to race and just messing about on the water. Generations of sailors have grown up with the Mirror dinghy. The Mirror has a main, jib and spinnaker to give young sailors an early edge. She is a good sailing boat, robust and able to handle a blow. The Mirror is a classic, with a large following and fleets all over the country. Once you have mastered the Mirror, you can move on to most other areas of sailing with a basic competance that will always serve you well.

The Mirror has some stowage aft. The boayancy tanks are constructed all the way around the boat. The Mirror is easy to right when she capsizes and with the aid of self bailers can quickly be cleared of excess water.
