Riess's Olson 25, approached the last race day of the season in the lead -- by a point and a half!
So he knew the competition would be after him (and he hoped he could keep it that way!).
Vivace's full set of Pineapple sails
had served Bill well throughout the year, but the Kevlar genoa had been serving him well since October
of 1991. There were four midwinter series, four busy summer one-design series and four years of the
numerous special races Bill and his crew enjoy so much. With the season championship at stake, he decided
a new genoa was key to Vivace's performance.
Vivace finished first in the last
race of the year, clinching first place for the season. The new Kevlar genoa was clearly instrumental
in writing that score.
Bill Riess regularly sings the praises of
Pineapple Sails, for speed, durability and unending service.
