Update to the scheduled Contessa 32 Christmas Rally at Cowes IOW
on Saturday 3rd December 2022.

This is a call to the CO32 Christmas Rally.
As always, it is a chance to decorate your boat in festive style.
Not all boat crews will be bringing their CO32, as many boats will be out of the water and some perhaps even abroad by then.
Nonetheless there is always the SpeedJet to cross over to West Cowes for the occasion for those within reach!
We all meet up on the pontoons at Cowes Yacht Haven to meet up, admire and weigh up the competition.
The customary G&T pontoon party is be at 18.00. (£5 per boat collected pre-serving by my heavy brigade!)

Then at 1900 we go up to the Island Sailing Club to meet at the bar before sitting down at 19.30 to a traditional Christmas meal, excellently laid on by the Club.

Menu Choices and pricing

The Club is kindly allowing us the 15% 'members discount', (payment in the club on the night)

I have arranged with David Flanders, Front of House Manager, that I collect your menu choices and I'll pass them on to him on the 26th November.
So please send your choices direct to me as soon as possible, but, usual suspects, please please not later than the 25th November!

The standard of boat decoration has been consistently high over the years, and has been much commented on and admired by onlookers near and far.
The winners of the the Best Dressed for Christmas CO32 will be announced following the meal
If you would like your pride and joy (i.e. your boat) to be there for that night Sat 3rd December, I suggest you phone the Marina as soon as possible to book early for a berth
Tel 01983 299975.  (Tell them you will be joining the Contessa 32 Christmas Rally).'
