45th Anniversary put it in your diary


I hope most of you will now be aware that next year is the 45th Anniversary of the
Contessa 26 and we are planning to mark this event with a meet to be based at Lymington
over the weekend Friday 15 July - Sunday 17 July 2011. We are hoping to achieve a
record attendance for the event. We have an outline programme for the event which
hopefully will result in a weekend which will be fun and enjoyed by all:

Friday 15 July - Assemble at Dan Bran Pontoon; moorings have been booked for Friday
and Saturday nights and the Association will stand the cost for those members of the
Association attending. There will be a barbecue that evening probably at the Royal
Saturday 16 July - A gentle cruise to Newtown Creek or Bucklers Hard is planned
starting at around 11.00. That evening there will be a dinner at the Royal Lymington.

Sunday 17 July - A "round the buoys race" will be organised and hopefully run by the
Royal Lymington Yacht Club. A leisurely start at 11.00 is planned. After the race the
fleet will assemble in Yarmouth and a lunch will be organised at the Royal Solent Yacht

I hope this programme will appeal to most. Details of actual costs will be published with
the final programme in the New Year. Each member of the Association attending will
also receive, as part of the package, a commemorative plaque and a house flag. I should
also mention that we do of course welcome members without their yachts and every
effort will be made to find space on those attending with yachts so they can participate in
the various events at sea! If anyone has any proposals or ideas for the weekend please let
me know. I would be very grateful if you would download the form complete and return it to me so we can get an idea of the rough numbers that might be
