Re: 1st dinghy

My dad and 4 of his buddies imported the first 5 Mirrors into the US back in the early seventies. My dad and I built ours one summer and it is what I learned to sail on when I was about 8. My dad's cousin was one of the others and he eventually bought a 1969 C&C Corvette. I did my first off shore passage on that C&C when I was 14.

The Mirror has a huge following in the UK and is a one design race class.
