The pairing of Holt with Barry Bucknall (TV DiY expert) to design the Mirror for the Daily Mirror in 1962 caused sailing to expand at an enormous rate. The Mirror was designed for home building, using mass produced plywood panels, and simple “stitch & glue” construction.
From 2006 the Mirror can have a bermuda rig with an aluminium mast and boom.
