Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 03 August 2022

The low water level of the lake on Sunday 31 July made launching boats difficult as they have to be dragged out of the harbour to sail. The lighter Topper dinghies of the Juniors manage this more easily. So, on Sunday 31 July, only one senior, Nick Hornsby in a Solo, raced. That he won all three races may be due to experience in very variable wind conditions. Jasper Bramwell was runner up.

There have been a number of other events taking place with good results for the club members. At the recent Laser National Championship, Daisy Fisher finished 30th in her division and now sets off for the World Championship in Spain.

Last week, three junior club members represented Lancashire Youth Sailing at Grafham Water. Millie Hayfield and Lauren Marsh sailed in the Topper fleet and Jacob Din in the Laser Radial. 11 races were completed in both fleets in conditions ranging from strong winds at the beginning of the week to very light winds towards the end of the week. Millie finished 18th and Lauren 12th out of 34 boats. Jacob finished 13th out of 41 boats. In the all comers pursuit race, Jacob finished 3rd out of 56 boats.

This week, the juniors are enjoying a week of training and fun at the lake.
