Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 14 June 2022

The Jubilee weekend reduced the number of racers at the Lake on Sunday 5 June as many celebrated elsewhere. On the water, it was the teenagers challenging the two seniors who were out.

As might be expected, overall the results were in Martin Brennan’s favour with wins in the first and third races, in a Solo. He was pushed hard by Jasper Bramwell in a Topper and Daisy Fisher in a Laser. On the downwind legs, the wind filled in from behind so that the lead was not secure with others catching up.

After a second place in the first race, Jasper won the second race and was third in the final one. Daisy finished third in the first race and beat Martin Brennan on the water, outdoing the handicap result, to take runner up place in the second one. Nick Hornsby took second place in his Solo for the third race.

During the week, at another round of the North West Junior Travelllers series at Ullswater, Jacob Din in a Laser sailed consistently well to take 4th place out of 30 entrants.

There are often club sailors showing the ‘flag’ elsewhere and Ian Laing is one such in his classic Merlin Rocket, sailing at Fishers Green near London last weekend.
