Representatives of sailing clubs at Cowes and Hamble have taken part in a cricket match mid-Solent. The Bramble Bank match is a challenging one, played on a sandbank - with the players negotiating the ebbs and flows of the water, getting very wet in the process.

No stranger to challenging circumstances - as the first person to sail single handed and non-stop around the world between 14th June 1968 and 22nd April 1969 - Sir Robin Knox-Johnston also put in an appearance.
