1 June 2016: Max Mirror Mission

Published 14:23 on 1 Jun 2016

Take 2 for Max Mirror Mission was on Saturday 28 May, our first attempt having been postponed from a rather chilly early May bank holiday. Luckily the day dawned warm and sunny with a gentle north easterly breeze and ebbing tide boding well for our raid to East Head and back. 25 Mirrors took part, with 50 kids aged between 7 - 12 years old ably abetted by some of the older kids from the club to assist those either a bit to young to sail on their own or a bit nervous. The format was to sail to East Head beach in 4 groups, taking the last of the ebb tide, with parental support afloat shouting words of encouragement and lobbying sugary encouragement into the boats as they sailed along. On arrival at the beach we kept a close eye on the boats as the tide had now turned and was coming in while the kids ate their packed lunch provided by the club and then played beach games like Capture the Flag, British Bulldogs and Football organised by the teenage helpers.

When it was time to go home, it was an upwind sail, made shorter by the incoming tide, back to Itchenor. The day finished off with supper for kids and adults at the club. A great day was had by all, new friendships made and some new enthusiasts in sailing Mirrors.

Looking forward to next year's event!
