Mirror Sailing Development- (Canada) .

I have to sadly report that Mirror Sailing Development- Canada has ceased operation. It is no longer possible to purchase Mirror Dinghy kits from them

This is sad news indeed.
I wonder whether the fees for the licence to make kits and obtain plans are still needed to maintain the class association.
Perhaps the dwindling number of suppliers is a good argument in favour of liberating the plans (to be sold for a reasonable fee, of course) to amateur boatbuilders.
The class rules are so clear that it would definitely be possible to measure privately built boats for regattas and anyone wishing to have a hull number officially recognised by the class association could be charged a fee for this when purchasing the plans.
