A breeze for LMH

first_imgSailing Cuppers LMH, starting out as pre event favourites, held their composure and secured their first sailing cuppers win in recent years. Fourteen college teams made the short trip to Farmoor reservoir only to be faced with a flat calm lake. Thankfully, a light but consistent breeze filled in. Racing then got underway in four leagues and the fourteen teams were whittled down to just four for the knockout stage. The wind remained light but conditions were perfect for this two boat team racing event. LMH dispatched of a strong St Hugh’s team in the first semi-final with some well executed team racing on the first upwind leg. The second semi- final was somewhat closer and looked to be going Worcester’s way before a late turn of speed from the Lincoln team led them through to the final. Lincoln provided formidable opposition in a scrappy final, which saw four penalty spins awarded in just one race. Amidst the frantic team racing and heated debate from Lincoln, LMH held their nerve, and took home the cuppers trophy.ARCHIVE: 3rd week TT 2004last_img
