E-mail (General inquiries, membership)

Note: These contacts are only for membership inquiries. Questions about your boat will not be answered. See Other Questions, below and About Our Forum, which tells you about the place where they may already be answered.

This Site:

Submissions to The Fleet, Website issues and so on can be addressed .

Other Questions:

Answers to many technical and performance questions can be found in Overview, Evolution and Black Arts. Address questions about your boat, the wonderful world of C&C 27's and the meaning of life, etc., to the Forum.

Note on Spam:

It's open to question which is worse: spam or the "cure", which seems to be spam-blockers that delete legitimate e-mail. Your chances of getting through are improved immeasurably by sending e-mail with a meaningful subject line, ideally with "C&C 27" in it; using "Hi" as a subject almost guarantees your message will be deleted. Multiple recipients will also put you on the suspect list.

Got a fleet of 27's at your club? We're happy to . Commercial links will appear at our discretion (basically you'll have to offer something that's specific to 27's or C&C's or hard to find). We do not do link exchanges.
