NOTES
The MIRROR was designed for home building, using the sheet plywood. "stitch & glue" method. The concept was initiated by BBC TV DIY expert, Barry Bucknell who built his own boat upon which Jack Holt based the final hull design. The name and the red sails were the idea of the sponsor of the project, 'The Daily Mirror' newspaper. (The front page of the Mirror was always printed in red.)
One of the most popular sailing dinghies in the UK, also has a presence in Australia.
A fiberglass MkIII version (2007) has a re-designed layout(by Phil Morrison)and Bermudian/Marconi sloop rig.
Spin. 65 sq. ft.
