1976 plan Peterson, Contessa QT
From Dutch QT Class Facebook, February 2018: "Built
in 1976, this Jeremy Rogers designed Contessa 25 was always a fast boat and
not so ‘wee’ in her former glory days. Ian’s son Angus did
his first West Highland Yachting Week (WHYW) with his father in 1973 and continued
to compete for many years. Angus raced 'Popcorn' keenly from 1982 competing
at WHYW and the Scottish Series, as well as other regattas, until 1985 and
winning many major trophies on the west coast. Then he married, family came
along and 'Popcorn' went quiet. Angus says 'Popcorn' had been a ‘garden
ornament’ with ferns growing out of the hatch for the last quarter century.
It was when he was routinely bailing her out he realised major restoration
work was required. He gave the task to Peter Watt of Boat Solutions who undertook
the work in one of the indoor units at Creran Marine. Although the hull was
sound the balsa core sandwich and internal bulkheads had to be replaced. This
extended too much of the woodwork and GRP. It was a complete overhaul said
Peter who re-wired, re-rigged and stepped a new mast on the boat. It was a
sentimental moment for all the Fyfes when 'Popcorn' took to the water once
again and sailed to Glencoe Boat Club. Ian Fyfe Snr (92) celebrated the moment,
stepping aboard her once again and was delighted to read the old news clippings
of her former racing success in the clubhouse. As a fitting return to the
racing scene 'Popcorn' won her first race back at the club."
