The Blue Peter was launched in 1930 although the teak used in her contruction was bought in Thailand in 1870. She was designed by Alfred Mylne in 1929, and built by W.King & Sons of Burnham-on-Crouch.
She was named The Blue Peter after the ‘P’ Flag, which is used as the five minute signal before starting a race. This was intended to bring her luck whilst racing. It worked & she went on to win over 50 races, sailing out of the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Burnham-on-Crouch.
The present owner bought her in 1999 and took her to Italy where he spent the next 3 years restoring her back to her original splendour. Blue Peter is now available for charter on the Mediterranean classic race circuit and having had some great results over the last few years; for any classic racing enthusiast she is a highly competitive yacht. The owner skipper is equally happy to offer her for a cruise along the French Riviera, corporate hospitality and for company tean building exercises.
The Blue Peter will be in the Caribbean for Winter 2014/2015 and is available for all the classic regattas in the Caribbean as well as general cruising. In the summer of 2015 she will as usual be in the Western Mediterranean to take part is the sailing regattas and for cruising.
