Ad for September & October,
There are lots of ways to win a sailboat race. But
Bill Riess and his crew prefer to win with Èlan - style, flair, verve.
Èlan is Bill's Express 37, and she
was first to finish and first on corrected time in Division C of this year's Pacific Cup.
On the Bay, Bill's Express is powered by a
new Pineapple main, Kevlar genoa and Airx class spinnaker. A Kevlar #3 will be ready in time for
Big Boat Series. But with the PacCup in focus, the class spinnaker with its knack for reaching
high was complemented by a powerful running spinnaker: a special sail for a specialized purpose.
Èlan’s navigator, Paul Kamen, won Pacific Cup's Navigator's Trophy.
