Thanks Rollo for the snippet and the endorsement!
I've only run into a few of the 27's over the years and all were unattended; never yet met an owner.
I understand there are many more in Europe
than this side of the pond.
One official HQ for contests in the U.S. was in Westport, Ct where I think they had a small fleet at one time. I have never tried to contact them to see if it is still active, though coincedentally, I grew up within a stone's throw of that shishi town.
I have heard that the 25 was a real 'cult' boat with a loyal following.
How I would have loved to see these boats fresh from the yard in Holland!
I envy you, Rollo and would adore hearing any other reminiscenses you retain re contest.
