Escape to Cabo San Lucas!

"Heart of Gold," Jim and Sue Corenman's Schumacher 50 took off on November's Cabo San Lucas race in search of victory and landed first place honors in their IMS class and fleet, and second in PHRF.

The 870 mile race to Cabo presented days of patience testing light-air sailing.

As it turned out only four headsails were needed, the light genoa, the half ounce and three quarter ounce spinnakers, and a special kevlar staysail/slatter.

In spite of what some may call adverse conditions, there wasn't a circumstance where "Heart of Gold" did not have the perfect sail for the conditions. The sail inventory made possible some "Great Escapes," which make light-air sailing fun!

Winter sailing on San Francisco Bay offers us some patience testing opportunities of our own. Pineapple Sails can give you the tools you need to make some "Great Escapes" of your own! Call us for information and a quote.
