North Sails: News Details


50 Years of the Mirror Dinghy

Judith Wilkinson


The Mirror Dinghy was designed by Jack Holt and Barry Bucknell in 1963 - so is celebrating its 50th birthday this year! It still has the unique feature of being suitable for all ages and continues to introduce the future champions into sailing; while also providing a boat suitable for those more advanced in age to be sailed with a crew or singlehanded.

The above photo shows a Mirror dinghy sporting North Sails exhibited at the Dinghy Show which was held over the weekend at Alexandra Palace.
