A Ghost Story

Ad for Sep 2004

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 Kaneohe.

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).

Are you haunted by a decided lack of boat speed? New Pineapple sails and the service that go with them will change that!
