The Fleet

The OWSA Fleet: Hoodview, Salud & Picaroon

The OWSA fleet is an important part of our club in helping with our mission to help more women learn to sail and keep them on the the water. We use these boats for our BOAST Program, for Wednesday Night Sails, for on-the-water classes and more.
Ranger 20 Hoodview with Spinnaker

Hoodview is a Kent Ranger 20. These are just plain fun and easy little keelboats that were manufactured in Kent Washington in the late 1970s. Portland has a great Ranger 20 racing fleet and community, so there is plenty of help for any questions that come up around these boats and plenty of competitors to race against.


Salud is also a Kent Ranger 20, so all the notes about Hoodview also apply here. It is also great that we at OWSA can apply our learned sailing skills and maintenance knowledge to both boats.


Picaroon is a Santana 22. People like this boat because it is a bit roomier than the Rangers and feels a bit less "tippy", which is nice for people new to sailing. It also has more adjustments, like an adjustable backstay, longer tracks for setting the jib and spinnaker block & lead positions and two different sized spinnakers. The cabin is bigger too making it nicer for an overnight stay at Government island, for example.
