"Beaucoup" congragulations to Joseph Melino and the crew of Esprit Victorieux, winner of the 1995 season in YRA's handicap division K.

Esprit Victorieux, a Beneteau 305, placed first in the first race, first in the last race, and no worse than third throughout the year. The 1995 season offered a full range of racing conditions and Joe's inventory of Pineapple sails, from a Kevlar main and .75 oz. spinnaker built in 1992, a .5 oz. spinnaker built in 1989 and #3 jib built in 1990 to a Kevlar 130% genoa ordered at the beginning of this year, gave him the boat speed "necessaire" to stay ahead of his competition.

Every one of Joe's Pineapple Sails is designed and built in the "spirit of victory." And that translated to a first place finish for the year!
