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.
2016 Pacific Northwest
It's Canada's turn, and we're holding the 2016 Rendezvous at Newcastle Island Marine Park off Nanaimo BC, June 28, 29, 30.
Some of you are familiar with the proposed venue, but for those who are not the Island has docks, mooring buoys, and good anchorage. There are clean wash rooms with showers, camping facilities, beautiful beaches, and miles of scenic walking and biking trails on the Island. No reservations are needed, and rates are reasonable for mooring balls and dock space, and anchoring out is free.
A short dinghy ride away is the Dinghy Dock Pub/Restaurant , and just across the harbour is the town of Nanaimo, with marina, fuel dock, and shopping, all within easy walking distance of the dinghy landing.
So there we go ... no one to contact, no advance reservations to make, and no reason not to come and have a great time with friends, old and new!
