2015 Mars, Informations and pictures From Dutch QT Facebook, received from Angelo Lavranos: "I designed 'Royal Flush' in 1982 after the quarter Ton Rating limit was changed from 18 ft to 18.5 ft. My 1/4 tonner 'Sweet Pea' class had won all the regattas in South Africa from 1977 onwards. Herewith attached photos and write-ups from that time. 'Royal Flush' is still located in Cape Town, probably at the Royal Cape Yacht Club." Differents pictures for different colours for differents years:
