Where is Your Contessa?
Chris Allen has updated the downloadable spreadsheet, this is the 1st update by Chris in response to the original post some months ago - we now have 175 members but only know the location of around 118 Contessas.
The wind had managed to play tricks, providing spinnaker-shredding gusts around St Catherine's Point before turning through 180 degrees and disappearing completely for some time at Bembridge. Despite the challenging conditions, 1,566 boats completed the course, an increase on 2008.
The big boats suffered more from the lack of wind leaving the smaller, lower rated entries to carry off the top prizes.
