Olson 25???

Have just sold my Niagara 26. Now looking for something a bit racier but in same size range. Hoping to take advantage of soft market to get a boat 7000 or less.

One boat that seems interesting is the Olson 25 with a PHRF rating in low 160s. Anyone have any experience on this boat and what conditions it likes & dislikes? Most of my sailing is 20NM + races in light wind but changing up to 20+ knots in same race. Shallow Strait with square close waves.

Thanks

Mike

olson 29 in Bridgewater

Hi Mike

It's Terry Scott from PEI. I have a Tbird and Catalina 30 and sailed on Jason Macaulay's Olson 30. This summer I was looking at some boats in Bridgewater. A fellow wheels and deals boats there. He had 4 boats for sale: 30 Cheoy Lee, Range 28, Pearson 30 and an Olson 29. The O29 had some damage to the Port side that they were in the midst of fixing. I can't find the add on Kijiji anymore and cant' find any emails I bounced back and forth.

I'll check the car to see if i still have the address or the guys name. He wanted way to much for it at the time. Originally he was asking 18,500. It's in pretty nice shape inside and maybe the outside is fixed as well now. He did not have much if anything in sails though. He said he could put us in touch with the previous owner where you could buy the sails.

good luck
Terry

Olson 25

Mike - do try and find yourself an Olson 25 - we have one, as do a few friends now - and we're all crazy-happy with the boat. It is great all round...quality etc. It loves big wind - but is a rocket in really light air. We're in Canada - but you'll find that most for sales are in the States. email me at canadatomk@rogers if you want specific questions answered. The only thing I know for sure - is that O25 owners absolutely love their boats, and ex-owners wish they'd never sold theirs - it's almost "universal"...

I was out on an Olson 25 last year... it was really blowing like stink... and they're great little boats....even in the heavy stuff. If you can find one...get it.

Here's a photo of another Olson 25 trying to catch us...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Mike-

The boat wasn't mine... I sail a Telstar 28 trimaran... which is why Giu et al say my boat has training wheels.
