Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 14 October 2021

Martin Brennan, in his Solo, was on form on Sunday (10 October) winning the first and third races as he mastered the shifty north west winds on Hollingworth Lake.

On Saturday, he had gone to Budworth Sailing Club in Northwich for a Solo open but there was no wind at all. This was part of a North West series, which he won without racing there.

Richard and Heather Marsh in their RS400 missed the first race but were out to win the second race with their spinnaker helping them to get well ahead. Les Bithell and Emma Turner in a Merlin Rocket chased hard and early on were leading but could not maintain the pace.

Once again Jasper Bramwell showed how well he has learnt with a third place in the first race, followed by a second.

There were several other juniors out in the first race achieving good results but one race was enough for many of them. Seven of them had been to Bolton on Saturday where, in drifting conditions, they still outshone others.

Jacob Din was second overall in the competition in Bolton, Jasper Bramwell was third and best U14 boy, and Millie Hayfield was 6th overall and best U14 girl.

The coming weekend will see a fleet of Merlin Rockets come to the club to compete for the annual Felucca Trophy.
