Time Was...

Ad for October 1999

Time was when John Clauser bought a bodacious old Farr boat to race on San Francisco Bay. And that bodacious old boat came with some very old sails.  So John began adding some bodacious new Pineapple Sails that sped up that bodacious old boat.

Time was when John wed the bodacious Bobbi Tosse and the wedding present from crew and friends. loads of friends, was a bodacious new Pineapple #3 jib.

With a bodacious Pineapple main, #3 jib and spinnaker, all they lacked was a truly fast #1 genoa.  So late this past summer, John and Bobbi ordered a new Pineapple #1.

Their bodacious boat, Bodacious, finished the 1999 season second in her division in HDA and went on to win the Yankee Cup, the champion of champions race.

The following week, Bobbi drove Bodacious to victory in Berkeley Yacht Club’s Women’s Skipper’s Race.

And they couldn’t have done it without a loyal crew, double chocolate cookies and that bodacious new #1.
