Topic: Just Bought a Contessa 26


I' a retired American living in the Azores and just bought a Contessa 26 this past week.  She has been mentioned on this site before by a previous owner with the name Ushuaia.  The current name is Coracao Simples (Portuguese for Simple Heart).  I will be renaming her after our future (first) granddaughter's name.  Have to get that renaming ceremony done right!

I'm sure I'll have lots of questions and I really appreciate you all creating and maintaining this site.  I'm definitely a newbie to keel boat sailing but I think the Contessa is a wonderful boat that will be able to take me from beginner to one day hopefully making a transatlantic voyage from here and back!

I look forward to talking with a lot of you in the future!
