Members should be be aware that this 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

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 Club.
Details of actual costs will be published with the final programme shortly 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 spare capacity on  their boat please let me know !.
We have a number of members who have already confirmed their interest but if you have not done so already please let me know soon . ( name –name of yacht – number of crew )
