|"Aotea" Won Two Three
- Bridge Fiascos
ad for March, 1992
What if they had
a race and just about everybody came?
The Singlehanded Sailing Society's "Three
Bridge Fiasco" is just such a race. With 123 single-and double-handers in eight divisions, the
competition is intense. Start times are based on handicaps, with the smaller boats starting well ahead
of the bigger ones. And the three marks of the course, Blackaller bouy at the Golden Gate Bridge, Red
Rock near the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge and Treasure Island under the Bay Bridge, are rounded in any
order and in any direction.
Peter Hogg's Pineapple powered trimaran, "Aotea," started last and finished first,
for the second year running. And Pineapple powered boats
were first in four of the eight divisions!
Sailing shorthanded, you're really on your
own. And it's important to know you can count on your sails. Call us today to discover what Pineapple
sails can do for you.
You won't be alone!
