The Annual Icicle Trophy, was hosted by Coalhouse Fort MBC on Sunday 6th December 2016. After an extremely windy night, Sunday started with a very light drizzle and winds of between 35 – 40 mph gusting up to 46 mph. The wind direction was good primarily from the SSW, and remained so for most of the day.
As a consequence the Race Officers decided to run the event as two heats and the course was two roundings of a windward/leeward course, with a spreader mark at the windward mark for the first rounding, at the southern end of the lake. With the high winds, everybody started on No.3 sails all morning with some close racing amongst the top skippers.
