Kame Richards is a sailmaker and sail designer at Pineapple Sails which he co-founded in 1973.

Pineapple Sails makes racing and cruising sails from their loft in Alameda, California. Kame is a popular and entertaining lecturer on all aspects of sailing but his talk at CYC will be a little different.

If you are curious about modern sail design you should not miss this presentation. Kame Richards will demonstrate how he uses sail design software to determine for example:

Will the sail fit the rig? (3-D model of the rig) The optimal curves for the luff, foot and leech How does sail cloth selection affect 3D shape? How are gores, reefs and stripes laid out on the 3D model? This should be a fascinating and informative evening with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

No host bar opens at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation begins at 7:00 p.m.

There is no charge however please RSVP
