Doug Peterson RIP.

As the America's Cup today went back to New-Zealand, the Yacht Designer Doug Peterson passed away. I remember when in 1995, after the victory of the N-Z boat in San-Diego, a design team he was involved with; he told me: "Was it a licking or was it a licking". Straight forward alright, and straight forward dedication to his goal of designing some of the most "bestest" I.O.R boats of the time. (to be continued).

Metre and J Class.


          What could have been before Intrepid, the Twelve Metre Class boat and now with the elegance of arguably the most Majestic class of Sailboats, the J's.
With such an introduction I might have to explain something.
