Mirror Class Description


Your Mirror Class captain is Richard Benson.

New class captain, Richard Benson, has now taken over for Season 2020. Although not the frame for a Mirror Dinghy, you may see him crouched under the boom with a little person at the back. Richard is peak Mirror for 2020 with all three children sailing in the class next year. Richard joined the club in 2018 principally to enable his 3 children, now 11,9,7 to take up a sport he has so enjoyed. Richard grew up in Scotland, learning to sail at Loch Earn Sailing Club before competing all over the world in Flying Fifteens, J24 and various other competitive keelboats. Richard is a strong believer in creating a fantastic environment for youth sailing at Itchenor to grow, prosper and most of all to get everyone out sailing and having FUN!!

If you would like to sail a Mirror or contact Richard, please contact the Club office.

The Itchenor Mirror Class has the biggest fleet in the Club and, with over 90 boats, it is the most active Mirror fleet in the country. We actively support all standards of Mirror Sailing from beginners to club level racing and on to national level racing.

Richard regularly sends out “Mirror News” to members of the fleet giving details of forthcoming events. If you would like to receive “Mirror News”, please let the Club office know.
