I'm new to the DCA. I am the proud owner of a Mirror dinghy that I intend to use for cruising. I am not a particularly experienced sailor so if anyone is around to sail with sometime I would be very happy for the company. I normally sail from Christchurch, Dorset but I'm happy to travel. I'm looking forward to the next DCA rally where I can meet some of you!
If anyone with a mirror lives nearby I would be very grateful if I could have a look at it just to get some ideas for mine.
I'm miles from you on East Coast, (Medway), But I'm looking forward to Cobnor Fortnight, (Chichester Harbour), this year with my Mirror, I hope I might see you there?
When I got back into sailing,
I found it really helped to join a sailing club as well, I got loads of encouragement and opportunity to sail regardless of the weather.... Capsize drill on your own is a bit nerve racking, but with a RIB in attendance....
Hi Jerry, welcome to the DCA. I also sail a Mirror, usually on the south coast, and am hoping to attend as many of the rallies as possible this year (to make up for two years of almost no sailing!), so hopefully will bump into you at one of them. If you haven't already done so I would suggest joining the dinghysolent group on yahoo groups, as information about most of the south coast region rallies is posted there.
