Topic: Contessa 26 Outreach.
On this list, there were 370 hits on my proposal for getting together Contessa 26 owners to form an association. Obviously, there is some interest.
In addition to posting on this list I sent the following message to seventeen yacht clubs in theToronto area - from the Royal Hamilton to Whitby.
"As an owner of a Contessa 26, I am trying to get together a list of other Contessa 26 owners with a view to forming a loose association for cruising, meeting and exchanging information about our boats.
If there are any Contessa 26s, or Contessa 32s in your club I would appreciate owners names and contact information.
If your club’s regulations do not allow giving out such information would you please forward this message to the Contessa owners.
I can be reached by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org"
I received a number of replies, and added to the owners we already knew, we now have a list of eleven owners in the Toronto area within easy sailing distance of each other.
We would like to hear from more owners either directly or by word-of-mouth.
In the next week or so we would like to have a get together at a central location such as the National Yacht Club. Please let me know if you are interested.
