Banbury Chaser sailed at Lyme

Lyme retains the Banbury Chaser!

The second leg of the Banbury Chaser, contested between Lyme and Sutton Bingham SC, was raced in very light winds F0-2 , which did not live up to the forecast breeze from the southerly direction .

Two boats represented Sutton Bingham, there was a small turnout, and Race Officer Andy Robinson had his work cut out to complete two handicap races.

Of the visitors , Chris Jones took the second race, but overall, Lyme won on points to retain the cup. The first leg is sailed at Sutton Bingham lake early in the season.
