The Bloody Mary (Sailjuice) - Queen Mary SC, West London, UK, 7th Jan

It was a blustery day for the iconic Bloody Mary with 150 entries braving the elements! The breeze was above 20kns at the start with 30kn gusts, gradually moderating toward the end of the race. 100 of the mixed class boats finished the course. 

The pursuit race finishes 150 minutes after the slowest class starts, which was the Toppers. The RS Aeros 5 started after 25 minutes to race for 125 minutes with the RS Aero 6s starting 4 minutes later, the RS Aero 7s a further 3 minutes behind and RS Aero 9s another 5 minutes later.

Congratualtions to Tim HIRE (Lymington Town SC)  whose  RS Aero 7 managed to come through the RS Aero 5s ands 6s to take a comendable 11th overall equaling his 11th from 3 years ago, the highest ever RS Aero finish at this event. Sam METTAM (Papercourt SC) was top RS Aero 6, just coming through the leading RS Aeros 5 of Sam BLAKER (Thorpe Bay YC ) towards the end of the race. Chase and be chased!

Well done to all the RS Aeros finishing a tough edition - everyone who turned up finished the race with no retirements!

Selden SailJuice Winter Series
 
The Bloody Mary is the largest dinghy race in the UK and the iconic annual fixture represents an intriguing PY challenge. With the Pursuit format there is the benefit of enjoying Class starts within the larger race, followed by all the fun of the 'chase and be chased' in the mass mixed class fleet!

Online Entry closes Wednesday evening. Entries on the day are accepted, but with a late entry fee.
