Sailing: Excellent results for Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club at British Youth Sailing Northern Regional Championships

Date published: 03 October 2019

It may not have been a weekend to sail at Hollingworth Lake with the low water level, rain and a very strong breeze but there was activity elsewhere.

Four of the club’s young sailors were at Derwent Reservoir in the North East on Sunday (29 September) for the British Youth Sailing Northern Regional Championships.

Excellent results included an outright win by Loukas Droungos in the Topper Regatta fleet, for those starting into competitive racing.

In the Topper Championship fleet, Daisy Fisher achieved seventh overall (and second female) with two top three race finishes.

Hector Droungos finished 14th and Jacob Din 21st in a fleet of 35 boats.

Over the hill at Pennine Sailing Club, Chris Massey and Tom Daniel came second in a closely fought Scorpion meeting.
