Staying Power PHOTO JAY AILWORTH
Bruce and Bridget Eastman sailed their Alberg 35, Sojourn, to Mexico, starting in 2013 with the ever-popular Baja Ha-Ha, and they have cruised to a lot of harbors since: Manzanillo, La Cruz in Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and up and down the Sea of Cortez. While washing the salt off of their sails in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Marina, a fellow Pineapple Sails customer stopped by for a chat and suggested they send a photo of their boat flying their 10-year-old Pineapple Sails to Kame Richards, Pineapple’s owner and sail designer. A “sojourn” is a temporary stay. And the Eastmans have enjoyed staying in exciting places as they cruise their Alberg. Their Pineapple sails have served them well, with real staying power, built to last and perform. Not many things in today’s world are built to last, but Bruce and Bridget’s 1963 Alberg 35 and their suit of Pineapple Sails, built in 2003, prove it can be done. Give us a call for sails for your boat. Or stop by to witness quality sailmaking right here in Alameda.
