Contessa 26 2017 Report
As with the previous season, we were down to three boats active in racing. Contessa Juliet, Daisy Dog, and True Blue, being seen the most. Sadly Keith in Tessador didn’t race (except in Regatta) but did occasionally follow the class round the course. Halcyon Days rarely moved from its moorings, and eventually was put up for sale.
Overall Contessa Juliet came first, with the biggest polishing task, second was Daisy Dog, with True Blue third.
Regatta was good racing, but the results were pretty much the same!
The good news is that Cliff Lake has negotiated the purchase of Halcyon Days, which will be staying in Bridlington. Keith Richardson has said that he will race again next year, as the class numbers are now increasing.
I’m sure that we are all looking forward to next season, but there will be a few cold hours to be spent on the boats before they are back in the harbour!
Here’s wishing you a good season’s sailing in 2018
