Highcliffe Sailing Club's Icicle Open Series of 2017 looked a truly chilly affair! Overall 8 different clubs were represented throughout the series that was also featured by South Coast Journalism. In the words of club press officer Sarah, "Excellent fun had by all. Lots of screaming reaches, yeehaws, capsizes, granny tacks and gunwale clinging!"
The overall winner of the series was Highcliffe SC's James Rusden sailing his Laser Radial. James accumulated three first places, two seconds, and a third place over the eight race series - very impressive consistency! Tim Reid of Mudeford SC took second in a Laser and then Ray New of Christchurch SC took third in a Finn.
