BLOODY MARY CANCELLED BUT REMOTE PLANS IN PLAY
Queen Mary Sailing Club has made the reluctant decision to cancel the Bloody Mary that was due to take place on 9 January 2021. It’s only the second time in its long history that this Pursuit Race classic has had to be called off, but there will be a remote race in its place.
Co-organiser of the Winter Series, Simon Lovesey, has proposed an alternative format event so that sailors can still enjoy competing against others around the country; “When we launched this winter's series last month we made a commitment to organise something on each of the dates whilst acknowledging that events may not happen in the usual manner. One of the options is to run a remote event, where people compete at their own clubs and we use GPS tracking data to merge results together."
“Over the summer we have successfully run over 100 races in this manner, including some class championship replacements. One of the key benefits of the format keeps people engaged with sailing and events. For the 9th January we hope to be able to offer a remote event as a substitute for the Bloody Mary, Covid guidelines at the time permitting.”
