What I couldn't understand is how Ian could take his eyes off the ice cream eaters!

Hayling haul-out
...
On practically our first night at Hayling we were introduced to this fine sporting challenge: the idea was to be the first to finish eating a giant cracker and empty your beer. Sounds easy, doesn't it?! Ah, but you can only eat/drink while your candle is lit, don'tcha know! You can see that this was an international ladies' match where the rules were (mostly) obeyed and a certain amount of dignity and decorum maintained.
...
And now, it's Scotland (left) vs. Canada. Gentlemen, poise your matches!
...
The crowd goes wild as Uncle Al has his sole competitive success in the two weeks at HISC. Kevan Gibb and Al were real gentlemen in their contest, real babes in arms. When the "big boys", Ed Gillespie and Colin Wilson West (below) subsequently entered the "ring", there were no niceties such as waiting until the mouth was empty of cracker and beer before attempting to extinguish the rival's candle!!!
...
Foul by Ed Gillespie who is not permitted to blow or eat while his candle is out!!!
