EMBRACE THE NEW YEAR WITH AN ICE BREAKER DINGHY RACE

All at Sea on New Year’s Day: Ice Breaker Dinghy Race

While some 50 brave… or crazy people jumped into the chilling sea, eight members of the Alderney Sailing Club – .
Sarah Rhodes, Harriet Scott, Ben Turner, Andy Kissick, Jake Woodnutt, Hugh Harrison, Danni Woodnutt and Jon Simmons) launched six dinghies to compete in the first race of the season – The Ice Breaker Dinghy Race. Bruce Florence was in charge of the rescue boat.

Then it was back to the clubhouse where all participants, including swimmers, were treated to a heart-warming glass or two of mulled wine and Hugh Harrison, winner of the Ice Breaker Race, was presented with a much appreciated bottle of wine by Vice Commodore Boyd Kelly.

An invigorating start to 2019!  More photos here
