Hollowell S. C. Windsurf Open Meeting - 28th March 2020
Hollowell Reservoir is set in an attractive valley in the north of Northamptonshire just off the A5199. Leicester is approximately 20 Miles north, and Northampton 10 miles south. When approaching from the north you will need to go through the village of Guilsborough. This has a shop with take-away food and a Pub. From Northampton turn-off at Creaton and after going through Hollowell village turn right at the top off the hill. Watch out! - club entrance is hidden by the bend. Our postcode NN6 8RN
When full the water area is 120 acres. The foreshore is clean and sandy - no angle bending rocks. Between the clubhouse and the water's edge there is a large grassed area used for barbecues, picnics and sunbathing. The parking and camping areas, near to the water, have been much enlarged in the last 2 years and new changing rooms were opened in March 2008.
There is a dry lounge which offers spectators a vantage point from which to watch the sailing and perhaps enjoy a drink from the licensed bar. A galley provides hot drinks and confectionery, and food is also available. Seavets are welcome to arrive the night before (please let Mike Playle know) and to stay over to Sunday when they can sail as Mike's guests. It is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places to camp for the night.
