Boats line up for the start of the second race
Martin Brennan won all three races on Sunday (30 May) in his Solo, mastering the tricky easterly wind. It was good to have sunshine and breeze. At this time of year the wind can fill in around the lake shoreline and have flat spots that are difficult to judge.
Although Brennan won all three races, there was close competition. Steve Crook and Sally Townend, in a Merlin Rocket set a high standard, always out in front and finding the right way to tack for the windward mark. Alas, the handicap penalty meant that they finished third an all races.
Mike Smith was showing the way in the second race, also in a Solo and lead for quite a while. He secured two runner-up spots. Dave Smith in a Phantom was consistent with a couple of fourth places.
Chris Massey took his RS300 single-hander to Pennine Sailing Club, near Holmfirth, for an Inland Championship where he sailed consistently in third place.
