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).

  2. Well, thank you. There is a lot to learn. Recently, we have lost Britton Chance, Ed Dubois; Doug Peterson. An era that cannot duplicated, when an Amateur you could actually build a boat and create legacies. Aka Doug, Ron and before Dick Carter.
