Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club

Date published: 02 November 2023

Sailors at Hollingworth Lake on Sunday 29 October enjoyed a good day of sunshine and pleasant light westerly winds. The day started with the Autumn Pursuit Race where the boats set off in a timed sequence with the slowest boats first. The winner was Jasper Bramwell at the helm, in a GP14, with Adam McGovern as crew. Jasper is getting used to both crewing and helming in a variety of dinghies. In second place was Graham Booth in a Solo ahead of Martin Brennan, also Solo.

Two points races followed with very close results. In the first one, Les Burns in a Laser had a good last leg to beat Adam McGovern and Jasper Bramwell by 3 seconds on handicap. In turn Adam and Jasper finished 3 seconds ahead of Martin Brennan (Solo).

For the second race, the wind had become southerly and was likely to fade. However Adam and Jasper lead on handicap in their GP14 fending off the challenge of Richard and Heather Marsh in their faster RS400. Martin Brennan sailed consistently into third place again.
