Sunday, 23rd January saw races 3 and 4 of Brading Haven's Icebreakers series completed on a grey, chilly day with light, variable winds of 3 to 9 knots from the East/North East.

This direction did at least allow for some windward legs to the entrance of the harbour, and the inclusion of some "dog legs" up and down either side of Fishermans pontoon by the race officer, on both the windward and downwind legs, saw the three fleets racing over most of the Harbour. The Illusion fleet having elected to race just outside the Harbour.

It was great to see sailors from Yarmouth Sailing Club, Royal Victoria Yacht Club and Gurnard Sailing Club.

A total of 33 boats raced two races over the same course with the fast fleet doing an extra round to the Slow and Scows each time with the following results....
