Seeking 1974 Mirror 45783 (most likely in Australia)


Good day to all,
My request might be a tad unusual for this forum but I do hope someone can help me.

'm based in Australia and hope that someone on this forum might be able to help me locate or be the happy owner of a 1974 Mirror, sail number 45783.

My father in law build it from a kit with my husband when he was a kid.
Sometime in the 1990s my father in law donated it to the Albury Wodonga Yacht Club when he moved interstate. I have contacted AWYC but they have no idea what happened to it, they sold all their wooden boats about 20 years ago the Commodore told me a couple of months back.

I'm looking to trace who owns it now with the hope it might be for sale, and if not to be known to owner in case they ever decide to sell as I would be interested in buying it back.
My husband has said how much he regrets his dad selling it since my father in law has passed away and now our 7 year old has started to show a keen interest in boating/sailing,
As his 50th is coming up, finding it (even if not owning it) would be a wonderful gift.

So I hope someone on this group might know who has it, or knows someone who owned it in the past.

The only thing I know about it beside what is written above, is the sail number from an old photograph.
The boat was build in Mt Beauty, VIC, then passed to the Albury Wodonga Yacht Club in the early 1990s.

If you know who owns it now, or who owned it in the past I would be keen to speak to you, either via forum contact form or email

Kind regards

Welcome to the forum!
In fact I think the thread should be titled "People looking for Mirrors they once sailed or owned".
Quite a few people are in your situation and unfortunately I cannot report any happy end stories (yet).
As someone mentioned on Facebook, the main people to ask are the members of sailing clubs throughout Australia. I suppose one could find the club Website addresses by a web search.
I wish you success.
