more on the dame…

Dame Pattie was purchased in the early 70’s by a Vancouver businessman, he put an extra long shaft outboard on the side of the hull and entered it in Swiftsure, she managed to win overall and held the time record for a few years,

I obtained the boat and had plans to refit it, but family, work, not enough funds etc. led to my selling her, Jesperson’s Boatworks in Sidney B.C. did a major overhaul on it for the new owner who sailed her in the northwest for 18 years, she was purchased by a Danish fellow and she now resides in St Tropez. – Anarchist David.
