Members of the Island Sailing Club and Royal Southern Yacht Club met in the middle of the Solent on Sunday morning (15th July) for their annual Bramble Bank cricket match.
The long-held tradition of the club’s playing a game of cricket on the Brambles sandbank attracts more spectators each year. This year saw England cricketer, Stuart Broad, playing for the Royal Southern Yacht Club.
An eerie experience
Having been out to the sandbank at low tide ourselves a few years ago (with 80 Morris Men on a hovercraft), we can tell you that it’s a very eerie experience watching the land rise to the surface.
