Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 06 August 2021

The overall results of the sailing at Hollingworth Lake on Sunday 1 August were dominated by four Solos - led, as usual, by Martin Brennan. However, the second race was won in a Mirror by Chris Massey and his 3-year-old daughter, Annabelle.

Nick Hornsby, in his brand new Solo, led the third race until the last mark where Brennan took over the lead.

During this week, daily training sessions have been held for the club’s junior sailors.

Meanwhile, attention has been focused on the Olympic medal race for the 49er class and there were whoops of joy as many watched early on Tuesday (3 August) at the club as Stuart Bithell and Dylan Fletcher secured their gold medal.

Stuart, from Rochdale, learned to sail at Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club as a child. He began competing for the club aged 12 and went on to become an instructor at Hollingworth Lake Water Activity Centre.
