Sligo Yacht Club provided a range of weather conditions over the weekend for the Mirror Western Championships. 16 boats took part in glorious sunshine and light winds on Saturday which changed to rain and 20 + knots of wind on Sunday. This provided a great display to those watching under the shadow of Benbulben.

Over the two days, the partnership of Duffy (LRYC) & Langan (CYBC/SDC) secured the overall title. Silver Fleet winners were the local SYC pairing of Jessica Greer & Imogen Wray with the LRYC partnership of David Flannery & Eva Fallon winning the Bronze Fleet.

Aisling Gillen, Commodore of SYC and her team put in a great event both on and off the water and a special thanks to event sponsor MalinWaters.

Over the weekend the International Mirror Class Flag was presented to Sligo Yacht Club as host club to the Mirror World Championships to be held in 2021.
