Hermione is a Conyplex Contest 33 Sloop rigged Yacht from 1971, Hull number 37. These boats were built and designed in Holland and are known for their long range cruising ability and build quality.
I purchased Hermione in September 2014 and she has been lying dormant for some years so needs plenty of TLC.

Thanks to the guys at CYOC.......
I have been informed by some very helpful chaps on the Contest Yacht Owners Club Forum that the metal strips connected to the shrouds are there to assist in the lowering of the mast. Thanks for your help guys!
