von Ehrenkrook's Cal 20, has a way of cultivating victory.
Winner of this year's (and last's) Berkeley/Metropolitan
Midwinters and current champion of SFYC's Midnight Moonlight Marathon, "Farmers" has put
her sails to the test. A four year old jib from Pineapple Sails plows through the fleet, sailing higher
and faster than anything the competition has to offer. A two year old mainsail and a one-year-old spinnaker
are clearly the cream of the crop.
Richard is a builder of fine furniture up
in Petaluma and, with his wife, Ali, raises two lovely children and a whole herd of sheep on their
ranch in Sebastopol. His crew consists of two next-door neighbors who learned their sailing skills
on the Cal.
Year around, "Farmers" just keeps
on trucking. --And their Pineapple Sails are always in season!
