NOTES
Similar to CONTESSA 26.
In 1984 the CONTESSA 26 became the J.J. TAYLOR 26. The molds from Jeremy Rogers were destroyed in a fire. Another company that had purchased the rights to build the boat in the U.K., also claimed the rights in North America. In order to avoid a potentially costly dispute, the name was changed.
Tania Aebi sailed a TAYLOR 26 when she became the youngest woman to single handedly circumnavigate the globe. In all, about 400 of the Canadian versions were built with the last in 1990.
