Sailing: Fun for senior sailors

Date published: 20 April 2019

With the Easter Fair at Hollingworth Lake on Sunday (14 April) and a strong easterly breeze blowing, most sailors were discouraged from getting on the water.

However, big boys like to play with toys, so four senior sailors decided to have a go in the Topper dinghies, more normally sailed by juniors.

They had some fun, but avoided recording results.
