General Information Vagabond is a Contessa 32, a class which is renowned for its stability and seaworthiness. It is one of the few boats that survived the Fastnet race of 1979. Many of these boats have undertaken extensive passages, including Antarctica, rounding of Cape Horn, and many Atlantic crossings. In many ways it is very similar to a Folkboat, high ballast ratio, good seaworthiness, limited accommodation, and a pig to reverse!
