I met a lady in a lift two days ago who ran into CP Mary at the yacht club where this race was held - in the ladies public toilets no less. (We were both suprised a private facility wasn't available to her.) CP Mary was combing her hair, and the lady I just met asked her "How did you go?". CP Mary told her she "won and that meant she won the series". I was in my flat above the yatch club at the time of the race and did look out while they were in that area of the harbour. They was a moment when Mary's yacht turned close by Frederick's - saw that and then it was on the news that night. Bit dramatic. Anyway, this lady is still talking about her brush with royalty - and I don't blame her - I should have got myself down there and seen them drive in and out. (Silly me.)
