Got a Columbia?

There's a group for us:
Cruisers & Sailing Forums - Columbia

Not much activity and not too many members, but you can change that with a click!

BTW, hit the "Group Tools" button when you are there and then hit "subscribe" and any new posts will show up when you hit "User CP".

Cheers,
DL

Re: Got a Columbia?

Hey Mark, someone told me once that Columbia 29s ended up being disqualified from racing, do you remember if that was true? Did I ask you that already?

My second boat was a brand new Columbia 7.6 meter. Great little boat that was a joy to sail.

Don't know. I quit the racing scene about 1970. Can't see why the boats would be banned from handicap racing.
