The racing season
never really ends on San Francisco Bay. But several regattas in the early spring signal the start of
a new year. The One-Design Invitational, sponsored by the St. Francis Yacht Club, is one of them. And
this year it offered both light winds and heavy in a challenging City Front series.
Finishing first in the ten-boat Newport
30 class was Dick and Pam Aronoff's Harry. Outfitted with a new main and two new headsails from
Pineapple Sails, Harry is off to a good start.
Dick, with his former partner, Thom, took
delivery of Harry in1974 and the boat has been "powered by Pineapples" ever since.
Another good start!
The best races begin with good starts. And
they end with great finishes!
