This weekend, in what looks set to be some fine late Summer champagne sailing conditions, the Contessa 32 Association will hold its National Championships at Cowes hosted by the Island Sailing Club.

With a recent record of 18 boats entered there looks to be a fierce competition for the top slots and the fleet also welcomes new boats to the racing fleet.

This event will be run in conjunction with the Contessa 26 Nationals; we will be sharing the start and finish boats but will have separate courses.

Whilst the current COVID restrictions curtail our activities ashore it looks set to be a fantastic weekend afloat. A race report will follow.
