History: Owned for many years by the Giese family. Hans Otto Giese was a prominent 6 meter sailor and tireless promoter of the class for many years. Oslo was the first six meter to come to the Pacific Northwest and was well known in the winner's circle in the 30's, 40's and 50's. Oslo was a familiar and formidable opponent on Lake Washington in the 60's and Mr. Giese's so-called "Cold War" tactics could never be discounted. She is still in racing trim and immaculately maintained with her original wood spars and old fashioned small jib. Oslo spends most of her time in the San Juan Islands, about 60 miles north of Seattle, occasionally competing in local races like the Shaw Island Classic.oslo in the san juans
