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.

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
