A Legend in Our Own Time

Ad for September 1990

The Aotea of the twelfth century was one of the legendary canoes that carried the Maori people from Polynesia to New Zealand. The Aotea of today is Peter Hogg's new trimaran, designed by Jim Antrim. It, too, is rapidly becoming a legend.

Built and equipped for single handed offshore racing, Aotea was first to finish in this year's Singlehanded Transpac from San Francisco to Hawaii.

Peter chose Pineapple Sails to build the new sails for Aotea, special sails designed to address the special requirements of his fractionally rigged rotating mast.

Special sails for special boats; special sails for special people.
