Sailing: Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 31 October 2019

The sun shone well for Chris Massey on Sunday (27 October) as he raced his RS300 single-hander to wins in the first two races. The wind came off the Lake Bank shore in varying strength and, with the reduced water level, meant wind shadows on that side to challenge tactical skills.

David Smith was out in his Phantom, with competition from Steve Mason in his boat. He managed to hold second place in the first and third races. His results were equalled by Bruce Mager and Craig Jowett in a Merlin Rocket who had a third place in the first race and won the last one.

Nick Hornsby and Les Burns got together in a GP14 and were on the pace in race two for runner-up spot.

Youth sailor Adam Smith was outpaced in his Topper by these faster boats.
