The Aotea of
the twelfth century was one of the legendary canoes that carried the Maori people from Polynesia to New
Zealand. The Aotea of today is Peter Hogg's new trimaran, designed by Jim Antrim. It, too, is
rapidly becoming a legend.
Built and equipped for single handed offshore
racing, Aotea was first to finish in this year's Singlehanded Transpac from San Francisco to
Peter chose Pineapple Sails to build the
new sails for Aotea, special sails designed to address the special requirements of his fractionally
rigged rotating mast.
Special sails for special boats; special
sails for special people.
