Dear S&S Swan Association Members, and Friends,

the S&S Swan Association was founded in 2000.

What did we do in our first 20 years?

Dear Matteo,

Thank you so much for all the leadership, time and energy you have generously devoted to the association.  We have tremendously benefitted from the resources, knowledge and community the association offers members.  While way out here in California we feel pretty removed from the center of the Swan world, the association (and in particular, the forum) has connected us with the S&S Swan world.  Every project we have undertaken has been informed by the knowledge and resources on this forum, and the especially the wise words of the Professor!

Thanks again.

Mark and Kim

Dear Mark and Kim,

thanks ! The Association, and the Forum, is what it is because of Members like you, your participation, your commitment to share info, stories, experiences made this group unique! This is our indomitable richness and power!

Fair winds (even in this moment in the Med -and Italy in particular-  there is no wind for our beloved boats, but it will arrive! We think positive)!
