The launch Carla popped up recently on a fb post by Peter David. Peter commented at the time that she was designed by John Lidgard and Peter’s father. Built by John Lidgard.Only two were built – Carla in the early 1970’s using kauri planks and another with balsa sandwich / fibre-glass. Both boats were for Peters father.
Carla won the Atlantic 100 race on her first try in the following categories – biggest boat / slowest boat and first overall on handicap.
Can we shed some light on Carla and what became of her?
