2015 State Championship - Kingston Beach Sailing Club

The State Championships were held at Kingston Beach Sailing Club on 14th and 15th March..

Unlike the strong winds experienced in Hobart, particularly on the Saturday, much of the weekend was fairly light, but with large fluctuations in direction- a PRO’s nightmare! Both Race Officers, Quentin Hunt and David Graney did a great job in getting in 6 good races.

14 Mirrors competed, ranging from the very experienced to Rookies, and everyone had someone to beat. First Place went to Ken Barnes and Dustin Belbin (MBYC) in Storefresh, from Marcus McKay and Luka Smillee (KBSC) in Sky 3, second, and Grant Atherton and Daniel Ragg (KBSC) in Kamikaze in third place.

The first classically rigged boat was Pukeko with Matt and Meagan Schofield from Austins Ferry. First Junior (under 16yrs helm and crew) was Lucas and Kai McMullen sailing Flying Flathead (KBSC) and first Youth (Helm and crew 16-10yrs) was Mahalia Kingsley (MBYC) and Emma Upton (KBSC) sailing Mark Brooks. The best Rookie over the weekend was Alex Kingsley and Florence Mann from Montrose Bay Yacht Club sailing Sirocco.

Special thanks to Chez Atherton for the great homemade Pizzas on Saturday night, and as always the canteen helpers with leader Dina, for keeping us all fed.

Mirror Class Measurement Rules



A full set of measurement rules is available on the ISAF website at:





Yachting Australia Boat Registration Reminder

Yachting Australia have issued a reminder to all Mirror sailors that it is necessary for International Mirror Class Dinghies to be not only the holders of a measurement form but that that form should also be lodged with the YA. (Accompanied with a small fee of $35.)

When an International boat changes hands the new owner needs to lodge a change of ownership form with YA. A copy of this form is then returned to the Association.

The forms are available on the YA website Member Service>Download Standard forms> Recognised Class Transfer of Ownership Form

While the Australian Class constitution allows boats measured under Australian rules to compete in National regattas only International boats can compete in World titles. Please note that the YA reviews results posted on the websites for National and State regattas

To quote from the constitution:

    The Class Rules of Measurement of the IMCAA shall be the current International Mirror Class Rules issued under the authority of the ISAF with the exception that for racing at National level or below boats shall comply with the current Class Rules or the Class Rules in effect at the time they were built.  

    Notwithstanding, boats constructed before 1 March 1990 (and not re-built or substantially modified after that date) may race at National level or below without a measurement certificate provided the hull was constructed from a kit supplied by a registered supplier and has not undergone substantial modification or replacement of the original construction material.
