ALLEN SPONSOR MIRROR EASTERN CHAMPIONSHIPS
19th and 20th April 2008, Royal Corinthian YC Burnham on Crouch
Allen Brothers, one of the leading names in the design and manufacture of sailboat fittings, is to sponsor the first event of the season in the UK Mirror Class Association’s Nationwide Series, the Eastern Championships this weekend at Burnham on Crouch.
Around 40 Mirror dinghies, the classic family sailing dinghy sailed by adults and juniors alike, are expected for the weekend’s racing hosted by the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club.
With 50 years of experience in the design and manufacturer of sailboat fittings Southminster-based Allen Brothers, recently took the move to market its Holt Allen product range under the Allen brand. Sponsorship of an event for one of the most popular and long established UK classes, the Mirror Class, established for 45 years, makes for good synergy between two well-established names in the sailing world.
The event sees a welcome return of the Mirror Class to Burnham on Crouch. The venue is no stranger to the class, which boasts over 70,000 boats worldwide. In 1963, the first ever Mirror National Championship was held on the river Crouch.
