It's a Family Affair

The Pitcairn family - Andrew and Alex, son Mark and daughter Emma - is a sailing family. They race and cruise Pegasus, their F-27 trimaran, every chance they get.

Andrew and Alex share duties as skipper, often racing double-handed. 12-year-old Mark gets the best starts, according to Dad, drawing on several years of dinghy experience in the Bay's best junior programs. And wheelchair-bound Emma, age 15, delights in spending an afternoon on the kind of stable platform only a multihull can provide.

The Pitcairns and Pegasus, current champion of the multihull division of the Yacht Racing Association, are an excellent test of the speed and durability of their equipment. So it comes as no surprise that they chose Pineapple Sails to give them their competitive edge. Their Kevlar main was new for 1995. The Kevlar furling jib has two seasons to its credit and "still looks like new."
