Brambles cricket

This once a year event couldn’t be more British – The Royal Southern Yacht Club and the Island Sailing Club playing cricket, in full cricket whites, in the middle of The Solent on Bramble Bank. It’s a very strange and frankly mad event.

If you get a chance to attend, you should definitely take it.

Below are OnTheWight reports from previous years.

Brambles cricket match goes International

"Gee, aren't those English kooky?" - (the imagined response over America breakfast tables this morning). All the better to attract visitors to this fine Island.
