Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 22 April 2022

Easter Sunday at the lake offered a good breeze for sailors to enjoy racing. It did lead to quite a few capsizes and kept the safety boat team busy. Leading the results was young Jasper Bramwell in his Topper who won the first and second races. Sailing away at recent events has improved his skills in competition.

In the first race, Julian Parry took a Laser out and came in second while Andy Smith took the helm of a Merlin Rocket with Sally Townend crewing to gain third place. He was caught out in the second race with a heading gust and capsized.

After a fifth place in the first race, Martin Brennan (Solo) was back in form with a runner up spot in the second race and a win in the last one.

There were a number of racers who did not finish the first and second races as capsizes overtook them.
