Patient Lady, Paul
Fuge's Ranger 29, didn't want to be second best. She was anything but patient.
Paul would regularly buy things for her wardrobe
and on Sundays she would step out proudly wearing her new threads. Paul's Lady was special to him and
he gave her the very best sails available. She was admired by the sailing folks around Monterey Bay and
there were many who would make an effort to keep up with her.
When it seemed like Lady was going to run
out of patience altogether, Paul have her one of the very first mylar genoas in all of Monterey Bay.
That was the undoing of Lady's Patience. She
was not to be restrained any longer. From that day on she was number one. With her Pineapple Mylar Genoa,
she had no match. Patient Lady won the Monterey Bay Championship. Paul's thoughtfulness had made Patient
Lady into an Impatient Tiger.
