Jan 15, 2016:  Interest in the Grampian 26 is still alive and well. I just received the following request from Practical Sailor looking for material for a future article on the G26. I hope owners will respond to the request.

Good morning!  

Practical Sailor magazine ( is working to update its archived review of the Grampian 26, and I was wondering if you could please forward this photo request to the Grampian owners association membership, or post it on your forum/website? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Some examples of the types of photos that we are looking for include: 

- sailing shots (boat under way, from any angle); 

- anchor shots (preferably beam or bow quarter); 

- deck shots (long shots showing as much of deck bow to stern and vice versa, bow looking aft, stern looking forward); 

- interior (galley, main saloon looking aft from v-berth, main saloon looking forward from companionway, head, engine access)

- deck details (bow roller, anchor locker, hatches, cleats, chain plates, fairleads, hatches, etc.)

- construction details (hauled out photo showing keel, etc., hull-deck joint - anchor locker often offers good view, through-hulls).

If you don’t have any of these, but know some other Grampian 26 owners who might, I’d greatly appreciate their email addresses so we can see if they would like to submit any photos. Your help is greatly appreciated.

For any photos submitted for publication, we ask that the owners include the boat type, name, homeport, and a photo credit for the photographer. The photos need to be high resolution, that’s 300 dpi or 1 MB file size, or larger. We’ll gladly send PDFs and hard copies of the published review to anyone whose photo(s) run in the magazine. The updated review is tentatively slated for the April 2016 issue, so we would need photos and owner comments by Feb. 5.

Also, if you/other owners have any pertinent comments that would help us update the review, feel free to send them along (and ask others to do the same). Some key points we’re interested in getting more owner feedback on include: the boat’s performance (under sail and power), engine access, construction quality, deck layout, interior layout, systems functions, pros/cons, and any pet peeves or praises particular to the boat. 

We appreciate your taking the time to help us update the review, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks, and have a wonderful day!

Dec 31, 2015:  Happy New Year to Everyone. Just updated a few things including the Grampian Links page. If you have a Grampian related Blog or website not shown here, let me know and I will include it. Can anyone from BC tell me if there is a new website for their annual Grampian Rendezvous as the one that was listed no longer appears to exist. Few other minor changes and to know what is new or changed, just click on the "Site Changes" tab above and you will find them listed there.

WARNING:  I continue to receive stories of the failure of the cast aluminum fitting on the bow to which your forestay and jib or furling gear attach. The latest report is on a G28. If you look at Item 14 on the G26 FAQ page you will find some discussion on this subject and possible alternatives for attaching your stay and jib. A NEW solution to the problem has just been added. 

 Site Changes: Remember, rather than look through the whole site to see what has changed, select the Site Changes page for information on what changes have been made.

Log Entries: I encourage regular visitors to the site to view the Log entries as there are often new and prospective owners looking for advice from you all knowing Grampian experts. Please take a look and see if you can assist.

Thanks: Well it is it is thirteen years ago since this site was launched. It has grown considerably over those years thanks to the information and photos you have sent me. 

I want to thank all those owners who have sent information and encourage others to follow their example. I especially want to thank those people who have made a donation towards the upkeep of the site. T

Don't forget, this site depends upon your input of information and photos and of monetary donations to keep it going. Please help.
