33 BOATS PARTICIPATE IN BRADING’S ICEBREAKERS SERIES RACES 3 AND 4 – Island Echo
Races 3 and 4 of the Icebreakers series from Brading Haven took place on a gray and cold day with light and variable winds of 3 to 9 knots last Sunday (January 23).
With the wind blowing in from the east/northeast this allowed some windward legs to the harbor entrance and the inclusion of a few ‘dog legs’ up and down either side of the fishermen’s pontoon .
Sailors from Yarmouth Sailing Club, Royal Victoria Yacht Club and Gurnard Sailing Club joined in the action, which saw 3 fleets race across most of the harbour. The Illusion fleet having chosen to run just outside the port.
A total of 33 boats raced 2 races on the same course with the fast fleet taking an extra lap at the Slows and Scows each time with the following results…
1st Harry White, 2nd Stuart Gummer, 3rd Charlie White
1st Harry White, 2nd Stuart Gummer, 3rd Noah Evans
