Northern Area Championships, Hollingworth Lake SC, 6 & 7th May 2000

Five races with one discard. Wild blustery weather with some sunshine and capsizes galore. A lovely setting and fantastic hospitality, with the Club volunteers working so hard to make it a memorable weekend.

Wind Around The Clock - Northern Area Championships 1973

Sailed at Ullswater Yacht Club on 23rd & 24th June.

SATURDAY — overcast sky, winds light and variable. The practice race and the first race were in the afternoon. The wind was generally northerly but very variable; runs turned into reaches and reaches into beats with bewildering rapidity. Young crews were told to ‘SIT STILL!’ while boats waited becalmed wondering where the wind would come from next.
