Ad for August 1998
a Sacramento dentist, sailed his Newport 30 II, Water-pik, into first overall in this year's Pacific
Cup race to Hawaii. Water-pik crossed the finish line at Kaneohe Bay in just twelve days and nine
hours after leaving San Francisco, correcting out first among the sixty-two finishers!
This was Bob's third Pacific Cup, so he
knows the drill. Water-Pik was well-prepared, with a stellar crew in John Dillow and Mel Morrison,
an ample supply of crackers and peanut butter and Pop Tarts -- and a full set of Pineapple Sails, including
three fast, well-behaved spinnakers.
Bob Nance chose Pineapple as much for the
support of his sail-maker as for the performance of the sails. From sail selection to sail trim to
sailing in general, you too can take advantage of the wisdom gained in our twenty-five years in sailmaking.
