The marina will be experiencing full bookings the long weekend before, and the weekend after our alloted time.Space has been reserved for 10 boats, but as this event is mid-week the marina said a few more should not be a problem.

The American Vega Association
is a loosely organized group of owners and enthusiasts of the Per
Brohall designed Albin Vega 27 sloop. Our purpose is to provide a
central resource for information and assistance in the enjoyment and
maintenance of these fine sailboats, to keep Vega owners and
enthusiasts worldwide informed of events and gatherings of interest, to assist in organizing and promoting Vega fleet
Rendezvous and to share information on maintaining, modifying, sailing
and living aboard the Vega. There are photo essays of notable Vegas,
accounts of voyages
and adventures plus announcements and complete
coverage of events like the Pacific Northwest VEGAtarian Rendezvous and
the International Friendship Regattas and links to sites of
interest. WE think the Vega 27 is one of the finest small
cruisers ever built but you don't have to take our word for it.
Take a look at this independent evaluation.
