The Association's goal is to foster the helpfulness, the camaraderie, and the opportunity for head-to-head competition that is found in One Design groups in sailing. It is an organization of people who share the common ideal that soaring should be fun, not frantic - people who include pilots, families, crews and others who are interested. Membership is open to everyone. Owning a 1-26 or being a pilot is not required. Soaring is exciting, it's relaxing, it's challenging, and it's fun - we know the 1-26 is the most fun. We'd like to have you join the 1-26 Association. Annual dues for individuals are $20.00 and family members at the same address are $5.00 each.

Folks, please doff your hats and give a big cheer to Dan Nezgoda, who has won the 2020 H. Marshall Claybourn Trophy.
It only took Dan until June 11th to make his award winning flight. Taking off from Moriarty, NM, he headed NE and ended up just short of Ulysses, KS, 297.16 straight line miles from his start point.
His competition early in the year1 consisted of four other 1-26ers who briefly held on to the trophy as the flights got longer and longer. Coming in second place, Jim Neff's attempt of 254.90 miles came the same day as Dan. The other three didn't break 100 miles before Dan clinched the title.
