The 2022 Vaikobi Mirror Nationals, also sponsored by P&B, are being held at Hayling Island Sailing Club (HISC) 23rd to 26th July.

All boats that entered by Friday 6th May were included in the P&B Early Entry draw to win a new spinnaker. P&B sails have been used by numerous Mirror National Champions and won the last Mirror Worlds, so the draw attracted a record early entry of 30 boats!

Congratulations to GBR 70785 Max Phypers and Emma Sellwood from Restronguet Sailing Club who were the lucky entry pulled out of the P&B spinnaker bag by Daisy Fuller, double National Champion Mirror crew! Their new P&B spinnaker will be delivered in time for the Nationals.

Online Entry is still open (£125 before 9th July) on the HISC event page along with the Social Programme (including BBQ & sandcastle competition) and Notice of Race.

The National Championship has many parent and child combinations, so provides a great opportunity for sailors that want to race with their children in a family friendly yet competitive championship. There are also youth pairings competing for various under 19 age categories and there is even a single-handed category.

HISC is an ideal venue for the family class, with its own private golden sands, great beach days are guaranteed, especially if the sun is out!

The Mirror Class looks forward to welcoming you at the Vaikobi Mirror Nationals - more details at www.hisc.co.uk/sailing/open-events/mirror-national-championship
