Bramble Cricket Match in the Solent
Published 13:23 on 9 Sep 2021
Very early this morning the ISC Bramble Cricket team lead by their Captain Tim Devlin (Vice Commodore) met on Bramble Bank and faced Royal Southern Yacht Club for the famously quirky cricket match.
Believed to have started in the 1950s, this strange but fabulous tradition sees the Island Sailing Club pitched against the Royal Southern YC were both teams play against each other until play is stopped by waves. And, putting yet another spin on everything, the match winner is always decided beforehand, although in true cricket fashion, the teams take it in turn to scoop top honours, this year it was Royal Southern's turn to win!
