Lou and Kim Ickler
have raced Ghost, their Morgan 38, in the Pacific Cup "Fun
Race" to Hawaii five times before. It means they cruise
the boat to San Francisco so they can race her home again to
This year they decided to power the boat up with a
new full-sized 1.5 oz. and a "shy" kite, both from
Pineapple Sails. According to Lou, those sails just "smelled
the pineapples" luring them to the finish line. They put
hundreds of power packed miles on the full sized sail and flew
the "shy" in rolling seas that would never have allowed
for a spinnaker before. Both sails "really made a difference
in our race."
Ghost finished first in division A. We at
Pineapple Sails want to congratulate Lou and Kim for their
Pacific Cup victory (and their mid-race anniversary).
haunted by a decided lack of boat speed? New Pineapple sails
and the service that go with them will change that!
