Save the Date!
The Olson 30 North Americans are back and will be held out of Duluth Yacht Club and Barker’s Island Marina over Labor Day weekend. With 8 boats locally, this is virtually guaranteed to be the largest fleet of Olson 30s racing together in several years. Throw in a few Lake Michigan, Erie and Ontario boats plus a few more plus changes to the class rules to boost eligibility (see below) and we should have a nice turnout.
Racing will Friday – Sunday with a distance race on Saturday. Logistics (launching/hauling , dockage, and mast stepping), along with post-race activities, race committee and trophies, is being covered by Barker’s so event costs to the participants should be very modest.
Class Rules: To encourage the greatest possible participation, we propose modified Class Rules for this event, and if ratification is possible, all future Olson 30 Class events. See the Draft Rules page.
