Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club: Martin Brennan wins trio of races

Date published: 09 July 2019

Martin Brennan, in a Solo, won all three races at the Lake on Sunday (7 July).

The wind was very fickle, varying from calm to an occasional gust making tactical racing quite hard.

However, Junior sailors, Hector Droungas and Jasper Bramwell took out a GP14 and acquitted themselves well with a third place in the third race.

Over the weekend, a number of club sailors took part in an event at Ullswater for the Birkett Trophy. In a mixed fleet of 230 boats, Richard and Lauren Marsh excelled with 9th place overall, and leading RS200, Adam McGovern with Chris Robinson or Ellie Davies in a GP14 were 27th overall.

Chris Massey and Heather Marsh in a Scorpion were 49th while Les Burns and Alice Morris came in 76th.

Several of the Merlin Rocket sailors are away at Salcombe for a week of racing.
