The Mirror Dinghy is a two-man boat with mainsail, jib and spinnaker. It is produced in either wood or fiberglass. It can be fantastic introduction to sailing for a young sailor under the supervision of an older, more experienced sailor. For the older sailor, it provides a technical challenge and competitive racing.   The list of sailors that launched their sailing careers in a Mirror is long. Annalise Murphy, Ireland’s Olympic silver medallist, honed her skills in a Mirror Dinghy. UK double Olympic silver medallist and Volvo Ocean Race winning skipper, Ian Walker claims he owes his career to the Mirror. Walker together with his daughter Zoe won the Mirror British National Championships as recently as 2012.   Lough Ree Yacht Club is one of the main centres of Mirror sailing in Ireland. The winter training program for the class is held here, drawing sailors from all over the country. The current European Champion and 2015 National Champion are from Lough Ree.   Details of the events calendar and winter training schedule can be found on the Mirror website and on their Facebook page.
