Dear Contessa32 owners, sailors and friends,

You will no doubt be aware that Covid19 is having an impact on life as we know it, let alone on our sailing plans. The RYA, on advice from the Government, has already recommended that organisations cancel any events planned up until 30th April. And the reality is that this is likely to continue far into the summer.

Your committee is working to salvage as much as possible of the season but events are out of our control and things are changing at breath-taking speed. In the midst of all this, I'm sure you will understand that we have no choice than to put health and safety at the forefront of everything that we do as an association.

You will receive further emails from Martin Rouse-Collen, on Racing regattas, and Kris & Caroline Nisson, on Cruising events. They will keep you informed of any changes.

In the meantime, I wish you good health and dearly hope that we can all get back to normal soon and go sailing. See you on the water.

Regards, Mike Sellers
