Soverel vs. Peterson

From The Soverel 26 Owners' Site

"Despite the Grey Mist fiasco, Locura's owner believed strongly in Soverel's design ability, and he commissioned Mark to design a boat to win the SORC. A second Locura popped off Soverel's drawing board, this one 43 feet long and very fast. Going into the Nassau Cup, the final race of the Circut. Soverel found himself with a comfortable ten-point lead over Chriss Corlett and the Crew of the Peterson 43, Scarlett O'Hara.It looked like Mark's year at last, but....

The race started with a downwind drag race to the first mark. Scarlet got away clean and Soverel had to jibe away at the start in a port / starboard situation. He never recovered and finished far enough back to allow Scarlet to grab the overall fleet trophy."
