What a Fiasco!

Ad for March 1996

Each winter the Singlehanded Sailing Society hosts one of San Francisco Bay's most unusual races: the Three Bridge Fiasco. Starting on San Francisco's city front, the competitors round marks at the Golden Gate Bridge, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and the Bay Bridge - in any order and in either direction! Truly a fiasco! January's squally weather and shifty winds only added to the race's challenging format.

This year's winner was Erin, an Antrim 30+ trimaran, sailed by designer Jim Antrim and his crew. They flew downwind (the driving rain and the boat's spray were at times indistinguisable), then found the upwind leg, sailing at speeds often over 15 knots, almost "relaxing."

Days like that were just made for multihulls!


And Erin's Pineapple Sails were just made for a powerful multihull. The full-battened Kevlar main, the wide-head Kevlar jib and the asymmetric spinnaker are all carefully designed and strongly built.

For sails that are just made for you and your boat, give us a call. They are exactly what we do best!
