Carol Leonard and John Hamilton have owned Ole since 1977. We previously crewed on her, racing in the Bay in the 1970's, when L-36's raced as a one-design fleet. We crewed on her sailing over to Maui in 1976 and bought her the following year and shipped her back on a Matson. Over the years have restored her fairly extensively, engaging Jim Linderman for much of the work.

Ole is now for sale. Click HERE to see a detailed description

Ole was built in 1960. She is hull #7, but there is reason to think she was built much later in the series the her number would imply - perhaps the #7 was held in reserve and issue later. Ole is the original name.


There is a picture of the cover because we think it has been a critical investment.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
