Hi Marty -

The one in Puget sound is Oslo II, the sister ship built by Anker in 1926, also for Prince Olav. It went on to win Cowes, later came over to America, and amazingly has remained in the same family since 1937. The owner has been very helpful with photos and information, and there is also a brief note about her on our website.

Regards, Chris

Chris,

I think I have seen that one, then IIRC there is another from a more recent time frame, like 90's?

Is Oslo moored in Port Madison on Bainbridge island? If not, then there are two 6m's from norway or equal around here.

Many years ago (the early 60's) a family friend owned a beautiful Herreshoff 6 meter named the Hornet. He sailed out of Everet on Puget Sound. Some time in the lates sixties he sold her and bought a boat to compete in the Swiftsure Race.

I've often wondered what happened to that boat. She was beautiful and extemely fast.

A quick search of the registries identifies Hornet as a 1928 Herreshoff 6-Metre, Sail US 39, whereabouts unknown. I could find no listed existing Herreshoff 6-metres in America, hence she would be a fine boat to preserve if you ever managed to track her down. Happy New Year, Chris

Thanks, I have looked for her (not real hard though) I suspect someone who is not interested in racing owns her. She's probably sitting in marina somewhere here. It's big area.

Port Madison, and Leschi have larger 6m fleets local. I keep thinking there might be some in Tacoma too. Someone may know locally where it is at.

A friend of ours grew up with Jill (a 1931 S&S design) that we saw, fully restored, at Olin Stephen's 100th Birthday Party in Newport, RI. Hope Oslo is fast, if you want to beat Jill. Just Launched - Jill | Maine Boats Homes & Harbors
