The Bloody Mary 2016 - Iconic UK Pursuit Race
The 43rd Bloody Mary was held at Queen Mary Sailing Club in January 2016 - the coldest time of the sailing calendar! The iconic pursuit* event is the largest UK inland dinghy race which had 275 boats and 450 sailors enter. Winning the Bloody Mary is a staggering achievement and the 2016 race was no exception with the International 14's Neale Jones/ Ed Fitzgerald. Additional footage from RS Feva (Toby Mizzi and Tom Callan), RS800 (Daniel Goodman and Debbie Robertshaw) and National Solo (Mike Dray). *Pursuit Race definition: slowest boats go first and the fastest chase them down over two and half hours - adrenaline pumping!
