Mirror32 update!

Newton Crum has sent me A2 300 posters and a £100 donation to 'Tallships'. I'm giving away these great posters to anyone who gives a donation of £5 or more to 'Tallships'. - and they've sent some magnifying glasses too. Is this so you can check the small print on your existing insurance? What a great company!
I've got a local firm making T-shirts and I've finished varnishing the boat.
I'm still open to offers for manning the stand. You'll get a free ticket, a nice T-shirt to wear on the stand...

Dear Sirs,
It's a long shot this, but as I'm sure you know, it's the 50th anniversary of the Mirror Newspaper sponsoring the design and production of the Mirror Sailing Dinghy. Over 70,000 of these have been made to date and the organisers of the Southampton Boat Show have given me a stand to display Mirror number 32 (made in 1963). I'm doing this in order to raise funds for

Mirror 32 in Photo shoot with Shirley Robertson OBE

Posted by Peter Barnes on Saturday, August 3, 2013, In : Boat Show 
Dear Emma,
Thank you for your email.
