Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 30 March 2022

Martin Brennan, in his Solo, was the clear winner on Sunday (27 March) at the lake. This also meant that he won the Frostbite Series during the month.

The easterly wind proved more fickle than usual. At times it would die away and then come back with a strong band of wind across the lake. Those are conditions in which Martin excels. He won the first and second races. In the second one he was chased closely by Mike Smith, also Solo. However, in the third race, when the wind steadied and was stronger, it was Mike Smith who won with Martin taking runner-up spot. Two third places gave Richard Mason and Nicola Thomason, in a GP14, third place overall on their first outing of the season.

There was a good turnout of junior sailors in Toppers. Jasper Bramwell sailed consistently with a couple of fourth places and a fifth. This placed him overall ahead of Martin and Rene Watts in their Merlin Rocket.
