Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club: winning day for Jasper Bramwell

Date published: 20 September 2023

One way or another, it was Jasper Bramwell’s day on Sunday (17 September) at Hollingworth Lake.

The strong easterly wind presented challenges to racing though it eased occasionally. It did result in a capsize for Les Bithell and Emma Turner, in a Merlin Rocket, who finished fourth in the first race instead of a possible win.

In the first race, Jasper sailed well in his Topper, finishing ahead of Martin Brennan (Solo) on the water, before applying handicaps. Xavier Bramwell, also Topper, held third place.

In the second and third races, Jasper crewed with Adam McGovern in a GP14 for some fast spinnaker downwind sailing and two clear wins. Steady sailing Martin was runner up with Les and Emma in third place.

Only the GP14 and plucky Annabelle Bramwell (Topper) went out for the third race being runner up.

A number of others were either away on holiday or sailing elsewhere.

On Saturday, there had been training sessions in particular for junior team racing.
