Ad for June 1990
Bob Evans bought
his first Pineapple Sails in May of 1980 for his Columbia 26 Mk II, "Honey's Money." Bob was
both season and national champion when the Columbia class was strong and competitive.
Today, ten years later, "Honey's Money" in
an Olson 25, again "Powered by Pineapples" and again winning races. Bob won his one design
class in the Berkeley-Metropolitan Midwinter series.
During these same years that Bob was spending
some of his honey's money equiping and racing sailboats, Pineapple Sails made some significant changes.
New materials, more sophisticated equipment, and most importantly, years of sailing and sailmaking
experience, have generated new concepts in design and construction.
