Welcome to the CSY Owner's
This site is sponsored by a loose group of
sailors who own "vintage" sailboats originally manufactured in the late
70's and early 80's by Caribbean Sailing Yachts.
About This Site
Starting about 1999, CSY owners
met on the Topica list,
which was a "list server"--emailing the questions and answers posted by
CSY owners to anyone subscribed to the list. There were some "hot"
discussions about such things as the "proper anchor" and the "shoal vs.
full keel" question. But the exchange was mostly about helping new
CSY owners learn their boats and profit from the experience of others
who owned the same boats.
Occasionally, CSY owners arranged
to meet in person at the SSCA Gams.
In 2009, it became increasingly obvious that
Topica's main business wasn't running forums, and we feared that the
forum would 'go away' at any time without notice.
So we've set up this site to have our
own forum that we have control over. We've had a few hiccups
caused by hackers, but most of the info exchanged by CSY Owners since
2009 has been retained on this site, where it is searchable using
standard forum tools.
