THE SOLENT, UK - August 31st: For a briefÊspellÊonce each summer on the lowest of spring tides, members of the Island Sailing Club and Royal Southern Yacht Club sail outÊto The Brambles sand bank in the middle of The Solent andÊplay cricket, before the tide rushes back in one hour later.ÊThe fixture was first started in the 1950Õs by the late Uffa Fox, a sailing companion of the Duke of Edinburgh, the Royal Southern and the Island Sailing Club compete every year. As soon as the sandbank appears the stumps are put up and the match gets under way. Many of the competitors dress all in cricket whites and ÔThe Bramble InnÕ is erected to serve drinks to spectators. The Bramble Inn is one of the most bizarre pubs in England: it is in the middle of the sea and exists only for about an hour each year.
