CO 26 Nationals 2012 report

Contessa 26 National Championships 21-23 September 2012 at Lymington Town Sailing Club.
 Lymington Town Sailing Club hosted an excellent long weekend of Contessa racing between 21 and 23 September when the 26 class joined the 32 class for a joint event. The fleet were joined for the rally section by Jeremy and Fiona with their new acquisition Grayling, (sail number 105 and hull number 6) who donated a beautiful silver wine coaster and bottle of fine wine as the overall prize.
