There's No Place Like 1st! (You can say that again!)

Ad for July 1998

Chuck and Anna Jones began their search for the perfect boat in 1995. Their plan was to cruise the Delta with their four children. They soon fell in love with a red-trimmed Catalina 30, named her Delta Ruby and joined Stockton Sailing Club. Their first day on the river they sailed alongside another sailboat -- and Delta Ruby has been a raceboat ever since.

But with competition came the demand for more boat speed. So Chuck and Anna called on Pineapple Sails for a new 155% genoa and the advice and support that went with it. The next year they placed 1st in division in the Club's fall series and also the Club's Jack and Jill race. The Club commodore dubbed the boat "Ruby Slippers" for the lucky shoes in the Wizard of Oz. (Their battle flag flaunts a sequined high-heeled red shoe.)

In 1997 the Joneses bought a new Pineapple spinnaker and this year we built them a new main.

They finished the 1998 spring series with a first in division and in the Overnight Race., and with a 2nd in the Club's Double-handed Long-distance race.
