Ad for September and October 1993
Club's 1993 championship series is over. And the first-place finishers in four of the six divisions were "Powered
Italia, Ni Orsi and Tom Miglioni's
Columbia 5.5, finished first in a fleet of thirteen boats. Italia went into the last race only
a fraction of a point from two other 5.5's and, after changing leads several times with her competition,
pulled ahead and stayed ahead on the last downwind leg. Ni cites their "PINEAPPLE SPINNAKER SPEED" as
the deciding factor.
Wreckless, Ralph Felton's Capo 26,
won Division A with a kevlar 155% genoa added last year to a Pineapple main and working jib. Wreckless won
Stockton's champion of champions race as well.
Windpacer, Bob Winter's beautifully
maintained Vanguard, placed first in Division B, powered by a main and jib from Pineapple Sails.
