During 2016 the club celebrated a successful 50 years of sailing at Hollowell. The club has never faltered in improving the site and always had a steady growth of membership. To mark our 50th birthday we published a book which relates passed events and gives a light-hearted review of the the passed half-century. Copies are available free from the club house but if you can't wait for that it is available in online magazine form just click ....here....
RYA Club of the Year
The biggest honour most of course, go to our founders Johnnie Leach and Don Howard who negotiated the lease with what was then Mid Northamptonshire Water Board. They and a small group cleared the site and converted a builders shed into a clubhouse. Working tiredlesly over the winter of 1965/66 they launched for the first race springtime 1966.
The Early Days
The pessimists complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails
