*The Bloody Mary on Saturday 8th January is included in the full programme fee and the Class Association will enter those sailors. As with the rest of the SailJuice Winter Series this iconic winter pursuit race, often with around 300 boats taking part, is a great racing opportunity to check in and practice the skills and lessons learnt during our winter training programme. Being a pursuit race it gives us Class starts and good Class race within the larger mixed fleet PY race. We will plan a pre-race briefing and debrief for the RS Aero Youth Team so that we can can achieve the very most out of the day. With training at QMSC following on the Sunday we can avoid the Saturday afternoon traffic by not exiting the Club with boats then!
