Due primarily to Health & Safety issues at Brentwood, the Icicle Trophy will be hosted by Coalhouse Fort MBC on Sunday 7th December 2014 at their Coalhouse Fort, Princess Margaret Road, East Tilbury RM18 8PB.
This event is open to all MYA Members with an IOM boat, so please get your entry in as soon as possible. Please email: John Newton firstname.lastname@example.org and Malcolm Schaffer email@example.com with all your details, including, MYA No.; Sail No.; Hull Type; Frequency AND Emergency Contact information.
There will be a skippers briefing at 09.45 am with the first race shortly after at 10.00 am. The final race will be decided on the day.
If there are sufficient entries for two heats, consideration is being given to making the last two races, ‘Medal Races’ – the winner of Icicle Trophy will be based on the top skipper prior to the final races. The ‘Medal Races’ will involve splitting the fleet in to two halves based on positions up to that point and running two finals, namely a ‘B’ Final and an ‘A’ Final, the top three of each receiving a prize. It is hoped this may encourage some of our less experienced skippers to participate in the event. A final decision on this will be taken on the day based on a majority vote of the skippers present, but please feel free to comment on your entry email.
Finally, if you wish to enter the ‘Numb Thumbs’ Winter Series for IOM boats at Coalhouse Fort (first round Sunday 16th November 2014), please email John Newton firstname.lastname@example.org.
