About Me

Chris,

   My son in California sent me this link today. I am Eugene E. Hewitt's daughter and sailed on the Oslo out of Michigan City, IN.

  Presently, my husband and I are in FL. I will scan and send a copy of the Hewitt family undersail on the Oslo in (I think) 1956.

   My father died in 2003 and he would be delighted to know that the Oslo has been restored. He sailed the rest of his life in Indiana, Conn. and Florida. At 65, he and three other men sailed a 40' Pearson from Tampa, FL to Brisbane, Australia.

   Will contact you again in later March.

Ahoy,

Paula Hewitt Banks

Sarnia  6 Meter Association.  It has finally happened Oslo getting restored!

OSLO, N22, Anker, 1927

Hans Otto Giese owned and campainged her in the Seattle fleet.  I had the great good fortune to be one of her reegular crew from the mid '50s to early '60s.

OSLO was the oldest and slowest 6 in the fleet, but Otto's skill and competitive spirit put us across first or consistently near the top.  At such occasions we would hang around beyond the line and Otto, in his thick, German accent would hail all finishing behind :  "VHAT DELAYED YOU?  WICISITUDES?"

Protests were rare among the 6's.  The offending skipper would call across:  "I owe you one."  When ones from other start groups got in the way, especially the more experienced skippers, Otto would hail:  "BEEN SAILING LONG?"

Intimidation was a favorite gambit.  To the less experienced who were fully in the right but in the way he would shout:  "I'VE GOT RIGHTS!"  The other often gave way out of fear. 

For distance races we crewed together on board of the AA sloop ALOTOLA, Charlie Frisbie, and equally memorable character but with a French accent.  Like Otto with OSLO, Charlie picked up a lot of hardware with ALOTOLA, but his motto :  "We like to race so long as it doesn't interfere with our sailing."

OSLO, N22, is kept in good shape at Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Washington, by the Giese family. where they have a place on Brown, the little island that shelters FH.

About Me

The eldest cousin of the Oslo's current owner, I recently moved to Gloucester, Massachusetts, the oldest fishing village in the US.  I live directly across from Cripple Cove, where, among other vessels, a large trawler starts its engines  every weekday at 4 am in preparation for a day of commercial fishing.  I retired to Gloucester because I wanted to settle down in a community that makes its living from the sea.

About Me

Former 6m ownership with my father.

I owned a 1936 IOD while he owned the 1929 Six. A particular breed of insanity.

I'd do it again in an instant.

Blau wird heute als eine neutrale Farbe, die fabelhaft schaut auf Männer und Frauen. Diese Farbe ist in der Regel kühl in die Augen und bringt eine beruhigende Gefühl. Ein Marine ist eine wunderbare Farbe, und es sieht absolut schick gegen Schwarz. Wie schwarze , versteckt es alles und ist völlig elegant. Kein Wunder , warum alle Frauen mag diese Farbe ?

Wenn Sie Ihre Hochzeit Kleid ist weiß, ist die beste Kombination , die gut zusammen geht mit Ihrem Kleid navy blue Brautjungfer Kleider. Diese beiden Farben machen eine sehr gute Kombination .

I'm nuts about Sixes.

 

I used to edit the Classic Six Metre Newsletter and I'm still working on the universal register.

 

I'm also re-building my Six http://www.michelselig.fr

Schauen Sie mich im Spiegel und dachte ... Welche Art von Hochzeitskleidern die richtige für mich ist ? Ich denke, das ist das, was die meisten Bräute je gemacht haben . Sie besorgt es sein, nicht schon wieder, könnte Hilfe bei der Hand sein .

Wenn Sie eine vollschlanke Frau, ist die beste Silhouette die A-Linie Stil, der den ganzen Körper , ohne die Aufmerksamkeit auf Ihre Taille verlängert .
