Picture and comments from Dutch QT Facebook 2018, "'BLITZ' Doug Peterson daggerboard 1/4 tonner (Design #39). She was an updated daggerboard version of 'Star Eyed Stella' that finished 4th at the 1976 Quarter Ton Cup in Corpus Christi (US). Here unfinished at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, circa early 1977. Dave Ullman (Ullman Sails) finished 2nd with her at the 1977 North American Championships. Would have been interesting what she could have done at the 1977 Worlds in Helsinki (Finland)..." and "Dave Ullman says they were so much faster upwind than the other boats at the 1977 QT NAs it was crazy. Here she is at that regatta, already around the mark with the kite full, while FUN still has some way to go upwind on port, before tacking to the mark. Only a navigation error on the last leg of the distance race prevented BLITZ from winning the NAs and going to the Worlds, where she would have been a favorite to win."

23 March "The Dinghy",

2009 May, Paul B, seen on forum... "There were only a handful of daggerboard QTs ever in CA. The Whiting "Magic Bus" plus two or three production versions, the Davidson "Fun" (your boat), the Peterson "Blitz", the Nelson/Marek "Blivit". Your boat is the only one anyone has seen sailing for a very long time."

2014 December, pictures and information from Dutch QT Facebook: 1977 Peterson 25 daggerboard 1/4 Tonner for sale in San Fransisco (3 photos), This is a rare hull, one of the last of the original daggerboard 1/4 tonners. Double spreader fractional rig and a trailer. One of the great racing yachts from the past. Current name is 'Rat Race Jr', but it used to be Dave Ullmans 'Blitz'.... According to Ullman 'Blitz' was much faster than everyone at the 1977 North American 1/4 ton Championships, especially upwind. They had a 1-1-2-2- before having a navigation error while leading the final race and losing on points to 'Fun'... The boat needs some TLC, but is a complete 1/4 tonner. Anyone looking for a challenge?
