Deception KA, Peterson Sister ship de B195

Interesting comparison of the 1977 Peterson and Farr One Tonners, presented by the late Jack Knights.
B195, aka PIONEER SOUND, aka MAGIC PUDDING is the Peterson boat, Design #47, 4th 1977 One Ton Cup.
The Farr boat represents THE RED LION, MR.JUMPA, SMIRNOFFAGAN, JENNY H, and HECATE, Farr Design #64 and her variations, 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the 1977 One Ton Cup.
The Farr boats were well worked up for the event, while B195 was still building the boat and re-cutting sails right up to the start of the regatta.
The Farr boats, being longer and stiffer, were faster upwind and reaching in the big breeze of the regatta. B195 was faster downwind, and would be the better boat in less breeze.
