Contessa 26 2016 Report
Like the other fleets, we lost some sailing days to adverse weather conditions, but in general, some good racing was to be had, with some very close finishes.
The Contessa fleet season was again sailed by the usual boats, Contessa Juiliet , Daisy Dog, Tessador, True Blue, and occasionally, Halcyon Days.
In the Regatta CO26 class, Daisy Dog won overall, with Tessador coming second, Contessa Juliet third, and True Blue won a bottle of fizz.
In other trophies, Tessadore won the coastal, and William Jones, sailing on Tessadore, won the Class Cadet of the Week.
Overall, Daisy Dog came first, and took took home a good proportion of the silverware, with other trophies distributed between Contessa Juliet, who came second overall, and True Blue, who came third.
There was some good racing over the season, sometimes with close finishes, hopefully to be continued in the 2017 season.
I’m sure we all look forward to the 2017 season, with more boats turning out to race, I hope.
