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:


It is time once again for articles etc for the next newsletter. Please let me have any suitable material by the end of August at the latest. It could for instance be an article on a cruise or race or information about any modifications you have made to your boat. We also would need some supporting photographs Please send by email preferably to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by post to 2 Pippin Close Lymington Hants SO41 3TP.

Thank you all in advance for your help.
