This rally has always been a good way to enter early into the fun of Christmas.
Not all boats will be up for festive dressing their boats, possibly by dint of their not being in the water at that date.
Nonetheless there is always the SpeedJet to come over to West Cowes for the occasion!
The standard of boat decoration has been consistently high over the years,
and has been much commented on and admired by onlookers, both near and far.
Cowes Yacht Haven
A number of spaces have been provisionally booked at Cowes Yacht Haven for the Saturday night.
If you would like your pride and joy to be there for that night Sat 3rd Dec, (your boat, that is), I suggest you phone the Marina to book early for a berth
Tel 01983 299975. (Tell them you would like to join the Contessa 32 Christmas Rally).
There will be a Pontoon Party at 6 pm. (£5 per boat collected on the night by my heavy brigade)
Two judges will be detailed to judge CO32s best dressed for Christmas.
Christmas Meal at the Island Sailing Club
The winners of the the Best Dressed for Christmas CO32 will be suitably recognised after the following evening meal at the Island Sailing Club.
Let’s say we collect at the Club Bar by say 7.00 pm to be able to go to table at 7.15 pm.
A number of places have been provisionally reserved for us. Please call them asap to reserve. Tel 01983 296621.
Meal booking is TBC
I ask please those intending to come, to email me by say latest a week before to let me know that you have been able to book for a mooring
and the dinner, with numbers from each boat attending.. I need to confirm numbers with the marina and with ISC
The wish is that the yet again Covid-19 rise in cases does not put paid to plans.
However, I hope you and crew can be there!
