The Icicle at Bough Beech SC reached its conclusion on Sunday February 25th. The last day was a bright but cold day with the wind a force 4 gusting 5 from the north east.

Once again entries for the 8 week series reached over 100 in the two classes, Asymmetric and conventional. The contest in the conventional class was decided after 10 races,with Guy Marks and Sam Pygall finally counting 9 wins in the 16 race series. The contest for the other prize places was a close fought contest to the final day.

In the Asymmetric class the winners had to wait for the final computation for the result. Jonny Moss and Alastair Moppett finally managing to to hold off Mark and Sarah Whitmore in the final race to snatch an overall win. The Asymmetric class saw RS400 and 200s take 4 of the 5 first places, with past winners Luke and Trevor Boughton in their 2000 splitting an RS clean sweep.

Five different classes filled the prize places in the conventional fleet. Overall 25 different classes entered, making it once again a major winter event in the South east.
