The Yacht’s Story
We have limited information on Olbia, however, she was well sailed by Christian Chalandre into 2nd place in her class in the 2009 OSTAR race. Olbia is the name of a small town in Italy. What we have (from skipper’s blog in 2009):
She was the RORC class 3 winner in 1973. Christian Chalandre has owned her for the past 16 years. Together, they have cruised and raced from Iceland to the Caribbean islands and from the British Isles to the Azores, the Iberic peninsula and the Canary Islands. Olbia hibernated in Pornic (on the Atlantic coast of France) to be suited with beautiful new sails, custom-tailored by Jade/Star Voiles owner, Christophe.
