A businessman has died after falling overboard from a yacht competing in the Morgan Cup race. Christopher Reddish, 50, from south London, fell from the yacht – the Lion – 10 miles from Selsey Bill, West Sussex, on Friday night.

Despite being pulled from the water by his crewmate, a doctor, he was later pronounced dead. Lion had set sail from Shamrock Quay, Southampton, to take part in the race leaving from Cowes on the Isle of Wight, and heading to Cherbourg.
