The Mirror Dinghy Discussion Forum

A global community

The forum has shown that Mirror enthusiasts – I call them Mirrorists (Italian i Mirroristi ) – all around the World enjoy access to a loosely-knit community of sailors in order to share ideas, know-how and experiences. Some of us (like myself) because we are isolated from the class at large, others because they are more interested in the dinghy as a wandering/cruising, family and knockabout boat rather than a racing machine and yet others simply out of curiosity, I suppose.
The year started with fun in Australia, the national championships were held in Sydney, hosted by the Woollahra Sailing Club with 37 boats competing in brilliant weather.

It would of course be wonderful if we could turn into a multilingual site as well, in order to really fit our global image. Of course English has become a lingua franca of sorts and the Mirror is rooted in the English-speaking world, but if some of your friends in Scandinavian countries, the Netherlands or elsewhere are prepared to put up a message here, please let me know and we may be able to at least make the front page multilingual. For me, as a translator, it is a busman's holiday but I'll give it a try by adding a German version.

Happy sailing!
