Bloody Mary


The Bloody Mary Pursuit Race is the most famous dinghy handicap race held in the UK. Open to all dinghy classes with a PY number equal to or lower than the International Topper, it takes the form of a Pursuit Race with the slowest boat starting first and the faster boats starting progressively later depending on a handicap rating which is set by the Race Committee.

This iconic event, which is in the Yachts and Yachting hall of fame as one of the Top 5 events in the world, draws competitors from all over the UK and the Continent.
