I have also been looking for infomation on the First 26 - have found very little available in english. can you suggest any sources?
I have one, in fact it is for sale, as I am getting out of sailing. As far as I know, no one has ever published a manual in English. I have a manual in French, but it's quite sparse, the assumption I presume is the boat is all you need to know?
Very French of them... Still I can answer any questions you may have. Jim
