Sailing: Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 02 August 2019

Will Smith proved able to steer a Phantom to two wins and a second place, ahead of Martin Brennan, in a Solo, with a first and a third, despite a light westerly airstream and plenty of rain at Hollingworth Lake on Sunday 28 July.

Only two boats sailed the third race as the heaviest rain started to fall.

This gave Richard Mason and Nicola Thomason, in a GP14, a second-place result.

With the lake having refilled substantially, a junior training week now in progress is able to enjoy sailing out of the harbour.
