All-Contessa Regatta 2023 at Royal Solent Yacht Club

by Jeremy Rogers Ltd 13 Jun 2023 11:14 PDT 9-11 June 2023

The first ever all-Contessa Regatta took place at Yarmouth's Royal Solent Yacht Club last weekend and despite challenging sailing conditions, a great time was had by all. The event was well attended with around 40 boats entered.

The racing incorporated the Contessa 26 and 28 Nationals, whilst the Contessa 32s used the event as part of their inshore series. The Royal Solent YC put on a fantastic programme off the water, with sponsors Louis Jadot, teaming up with island fruit growers Halls Hunter to provide sustenance for the sailors over the weekend.

Saturday night saw the Contessa fleet hit the dance floor with characteristic enthusiasm, waking to a downpour and more light winds on Sunday morning.

The winning boat in each class was presented with a Magnum of Louis Jadot Moulin-a-Vent Chateau des Jacques with the overall winner, Contessa 32 Merak II receiving a Jeroboam.

Title sponsors were Jeremy Rogers Ltd, home of the Contessa, and prizes were presented by Jeremy's widow Fiona.

Save-the-Date for next year's all Contessa Regatta! 31st May - 2nd June 2024.
