Conveniently located in the foothills of the Pennines this 117 acre lake is less than 3 miles from the M62 and boasts fantastic views as well as a great sailing area ideal for training, recreational sailing and racing.

GP14s claim the top two spots as the sun arrives at Hollingworth Lake!

Wednesday 18th April

It was a GP14 top two on Wednesday night at what was our best turnout of the season so far with 18 boats out racing. After a chaotic start which saw Stuart Bates port tack the fleet in a Solo, it was Adam McGovern and Ellie Davies who held off the challenge from Andy Carter and Dave Fisher to take the win with Sunday’s winners Steve Crook and Sally Townend finishing third in the Merlin Rocket. We had close racing throughout the fleet and it was great to see a number of our newer members out racing.
