Sailing: Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club reopens for members

Date published: 28 May 2020

Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club has approved recreational sailing for members. 

It was announced on Wednesday 13 May that all forms of water-sports including sailing, windsurfing and motor-boating are now permitted.

There will be no organised racing yet but due to the gradual easing of restrictions, and the opportunity to be sporting active, members may get out on the water to sail within the guidelines.

Mainly this will be single-handed, as any two-handed boats must be sailed by members of the same household.

Social distancing guidelines must be followed by members at all times.
