another good choice for Hunts.  I am sure we could arrange a test sail at some point.
the same, but different...

Graduate. Cheap as chips and embarrass many other classes in inland waters predominantly light winds. Will teach you tactics too. Defo some Grads at Hunts.

There have been some grads at Hunts (and may well still be) but there is a burst of actiivty amongst the GPs at them moment, particularly with fathers and sons.

don't get a mirror unless you have ambitions to go through the squads,
there is no other reason to get one, unless you want a boat to sail row and
motor!

I think the reason to get a Mirror is that at the club where these guys are sailing they are quite a popular class.  At the moment a fair few of them sail socially, and I have already been asked to run some Mirror race training for them next year. 

I think thye could get a cheapie Mirror and have a lot of fun learning in it, before they go on to the next step.

Your are partially correct. There is 1 Grad that sails occasionally through the summer (lack of crew I think is the reason) and another (from the same family) that 'visits' and sails.

There maybe a few others in the boat park but they have not moved in years...

Don't forget the 2 that are starting to race regularly now (ok I think one of them is a squad boat). Would be good to see some more Mirrors, if a fleet got going I would consider purchasing one to take my little 'un round in.
