PNW Olson 30 Class Association

PNW Fleet Seattle, Tacoma and BC (updated Sept 2006)

There have been alot of changes in the fleet in the last few years: a few boats were sold to out-of-state owners (Enigma, Apacalypso), some changed hands locally (Aliens, Wild Turkey, Orcrist), and some are on hiatus from racing (Crime Scene, Bad Dog, Temptress). I will try to capture some of them below. Alex
