1986 - Peter Batterley sails to Brittany


Starting January 2015, Peter Batterley sponsors the GXSA award for Photo Journalism, inspired by a programme run by Dartmouth Yacht Club, where Peter was a member after he left Gerrards Cross.

The article below was Peter's award winning submission to Datrmouth Yacht Club, which we have scanned to be read by current GXSA members.

Peter's boat was a Rival 38 Cruising Ketch, which he designed with Peter Brett (of Rival Boats) based on the original Rival 38 Sloop.

It's interesting to note how the various ports have changed since 1986, and that Peter created the article the old fashioned way with paper, typewriter, film-prints, scissors, and glue....How times have changed...

It makes interesting reading
