The Itchenor Mirror Class has the biggest fleet in the Club and, with over 90 boats, it is the most active Mirror fleet in the country. We actively support all standards of Mirror Sailing from beginners to club level racing to south area and RYA National squad sailing.

The 2015 sailing programme has an exciting mix of beginner training, race training, two mirror training weeks, junior fortnight, weekend club racing and special mini regattas. We are also hosting a Mirror open meeting on June 20/21st.

Max Mirror Mission - our long standing Mirror rally especially designed for parents and children alike to make new friends starts with a family supper on Saturday May 2nd and the rally itself held on 3rd May 2015 – contact the Office for application details.

Mike regularly sends out “Mirror News” to members of the fleet giving details of forthcoming events. If you would like to receive “Mirror News”, please let either Mike or the Club office know.
