Banbury Solo Open - Report

Ian Walters. Nearly every mark was used!

Banbury Solo Open Report.

This years 'Sailing Chandlery Solo Midland Series' kicked off at Banbury SC on Sunday the 25th of March. 24 boats for far and wide entered the event, entry fee included tea/Coffee, Lunch, Pudding and a bit of Sailing. 
The racing was fast and furious in the light but warm breeze. A number of the countries top helms came making it a quality field and a top 10 finish difficult.   

Ian was the name of the day with Ian Ingram winning the first race and not too far away in the other three to finish 2nd over all, congratulations goes to Ian Walters ending the day with 2,1,1,5 and winning the event, Tom Lonsdale was 3rd. 


Thanks go to Banbury for holding the event, the OD for having the tricky problem of starting 24 boats in a restricted area and fending off advice from the local fishermen.
