The lake was very calm on Sunday 6 June as sailors came to race for the annual Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club Championship.
Very little sign of wind was not auspicious but seven Solo sailors turned up for the competition. As it was the end of half term and there were a number of other racing events elsewhere, only the keenest and patient sailors would search for the air to propel their boat.
The strongest candidate to win was Martin Brennan and so it proved. His unerring ability to judge where any wind would come from, as it changed on each leg of the course, secured a series of first places.
His series of race wins was only threatened in race two when Nick Hornsby managed to take the lead for a while.
Stuart Bates, Club Commodore, borrowed a boat and, after a close finish in the first race for second place, took third place overall.
