Topic: A proposal for a Contessa Association
I am a new owner of a Contessa 26 and wondering if there are any class associations for Contessas. My previous boat was an Alberg 30, and I benefitted from being a member of the Great Lakes Alberg Association that puts out a newsletter, a directory of members, organizes cruises, rendezvous and challenge races for the class, as well as maintaining contact with the very active Chesapeake Bay Alberg group in the US. The GLAA is not only for the Alberg 30s but includes the Alberg 22s,29s and the 37s
There are now six Contessa 26s in the Alexandra and National yacht clubs and more around the Lakes. Would there be any interest in forming a Great Lakes Contessa Association that could include 26s and possibly 32s? I, for one, would love to meet with other owners of these wonderful boats.
