Foiling Moth wins Bloody Mary (almost)

Line honours in the Bloody Mary went to Graham Vials in a foiling Moth, but as he was not eligible for the main prize, the Bloody Mary event went to Rob Greenhalgh and Dan Johnson in their International 14.

The annual pursuit race, held at the Queen Mary SC near London, attracted 260 entries, with 240 racing.

Foiling Moths took first and fourth, with Graham Vials taking the Line Honours, Rob Greenhalgh and Dan Johnson were second andevent winners, Pete Barton and Boonie Moody in a Cherub were third.

It was a day for the fast boats. Harry Pynn, seventh in his Lark, was the first none trapeze/foiler dinghy and Geoff Carveth the first non-foiler single hander in a Solo was tenth.

Completing the Foiler revolution was Olly Straker in a foiler version of the RS600 trapeze single hander, finishing 12th.
