This will now run from Friday June 24th to Sunday June 26th 2022. The full weekend of celebration is unchanged in format and includes the year's Nationals regatta, providing plenty of spectacle for those who prefer to relax and watch.

In the meantime, Sue Stitt has created a fantastic limited edition print, initially available just to Contessa members.

All Contessa owners and lovers, both past and present, are welcome to come for some or all of the weekend whether by land, air or sea!

    Activities during the weekend include:
    • Saturday night marquee including food, music and dancing (provided by local band Zac and the Zeros)
    • Book here
    • Short cruises in company within the Solent
    • Racing for those so inclined

    Important facts:

  • Existing bookings are being rolled over; there is no need to book again
  • Please contact us at if you want to cancel your booking; we will issue a full refund
  • Numbers will still be limited and available on a purely first-come-first-served basis, so for those who haven't booked, act early
  • Association members are being prioritised until April 2021
