A silkye, according to Irish folklore, is a shape shifter
- a seal that changes to human form to befriend us and even
Silkye, Steve Seal and John and Rina Skinner's
WylieCat 30, placed first for the year in Handicap Division
K and went on to beat the other division winners in the Yankee
Cup, HDA’s ‘champion of champions’ finale.
A catboat's one and only sail must shift it's shape to meet
every condition, windy and light and everything in between. It
must work upwind and down. The original Pineapple mainsail
kept Silkye racing and cruising successfully for
six years from 1997 through 2002. The new Pineapple
sail and the owners' years of competitive sailing gave them
the edge in 2003.
