Chuck and Anna Jones began their search for
the perfect boat in 1995. Their plan was to cruise the Delta with their four children. They soon fell
in love with a red-trimmed Catalina 30, named her Delta Ruby and joined Stockton Sailing Club.
Their first day on the river they sailed alongside another sailboat -- and Delta Ruby has been
a raceboat ever since.
But with competition came the demand for more
boat speed. So Chuck and Anna called on Pineapple Sails for a new 155% genoa and the advice and support
that went with it. The next year they placed 1st in division in the Club's fall series and also the Club's
Jack and Jill race. The Club commodore dubbed the boat "Ruby Slippers" for the lucky shoes in the Wizard
of Oz. (Their battle flag flaunts a sequined high-heeled red shoe.)
In 1997 the Joneses bought a new Pineapple
spinnaker and this year we built them a new main.
