Jim and Sue Corenman
enjoy racing their Nordic 40, "Wild Goose." So this spring they had the boat measured for an
IMS (International Measurement System) rating and entered the Vallejo Race.
"Wild Goose" won the race overall
under IMS, both to Vallejo and back.
The Nordic is a racer/cruiser. Her full
complement of Pineapple Sails and state-of-the-art electronics are matched by her full complement of
blender, TV, CD player and vacuum cleaner.
"Goose's" sails were built to
be fast and stay fast. The Kevlar main was built in 1987 and is still winning races; the newest spinnaker
was built before last year's Pacific Cup. All the sails on the boat have remained competitive, defeating
much newer sails in a highly competitive fleet.
