Icicle Trophy 2020

The first Littleton Trophy event of the year took place on Sunday 5th January. The Icicle Trophy was sailed in more pleasant conditions than it has been in some past years, and certainly not living up to its name on this occasion! Thanks go to Steve Jones and his team for setting some great courses resulting in some close racing over the three general handicap race series. In a total fleet of 15 entries, congratulations to Nick Pepper, who triumphed in his Laser, to take the trophy at the end of the day.
