Join the Circus Racing sailboats can really be a circus. Ever since Louis Kruk and his wife Laura bought their Beneteau 42s7 last fall, they have made this the theme for Cirque. E-mails to the crew are “cirque-ulations.” Louis is the “ring master” (juggling clubs is actually a hobby), the crew are “performers” and there is that “contortionist” on the bow. Bright colors are everywhere.
Cirque won their class in the Ocean Yacht Racing Association Spring Series. The boat’s Pineapple sails were a big part of that “performance.” Louis and Laura keep their racing fun, but they also cruise regularly. In fact their next “act” is the Baja Ha-Ha this fall, with more cruising in Mexico to follow. Then who knows – perhaps a “cirque”-cumnavigation... Powered by Pineapples. Give us a call, or better still, stop by to see our “show.” We make sails for your pleasure. Right here in Alameda, California.
