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.
Membership: We're no longer keeping track. Access to the MemberShip pages including the newsletter archive and the Vega Owners Repair and Maintenance Manual, compiled by the members for more than thirty years and continually updated with new material, available in printer-friendly .pdf format is no longer restricted so the information is free for anyone interested.
Membership fees have been waived. Expenses are being covered by volutnary contributions. If you wish to support our efforts to maintain this resource, click the button at the bottom of the page.
All in all, the American Vega Association web site is a valuable resource for any owner or aspiring owner of a Vega or any small fiberglass cruising sailboat. If you have any questions email us at:
