Sailing: Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club
With the easing of restrictions on 29 March meaning sailing could now resume, sailors were keen to get racing on Hollingworth Lake again. Some had been on the water during the past week and it was great to see 15 boats out on Sunday 4 April.
In the breezy conditions, it was always likely that the five Solos would have the closest racing in the results. However, the range of boats would also see who was in the fittest trim to race. And there would be several capsizes as the day became more blustery with the clouds building. Some sudden windshifts would catch the unwary.
In the first race, Chris Massey (having been out on Saturday with his young daughter in a Mirror) was race ready to win in his RS300. It was the Juniors in Toppers who showed up well, with Hector Droungas in second place, ahead of Nick Brook (Solo), having got past Andy Carter. Fourth place went to Jacob Din (Topper). Although Nick Brook and Daisy Fisher were tied on two race results, the last race success gave the day to young Daisy.
Sailors enjoyed the chance to race in a full lake and will now be out each Sunday and Wednesday evening.
