Raptor is one of five tri’s built for the 1980 OSTAR, by a group of Americans who wanted to capture the titles from the French. She did the race, (her name was Peggy) and while she did not win, two of her sister ships did (Moxie and Third Turtle – both also Newick Designs). She was built on Martha’s Vineyard, by Tom Ruan, Ovid Ward, Rory Nugent, and others maybe including Joe Colpitt, calling themselves Daffy Duck Marine. the current owner is her third. He has had her for 15 years. the boat was raced early on, taking a third in division in an Around Long Island, a first in the Western Long Island Sound Regatta, a first in the Glen Cove/Greenwich Regatta, and a bunch of seconds and thirds.  The only reason she is for sale, is that the owner is concentrating on updating and sailing his soon to be live a board, for full time cruising and he just does not have the time to sail her. She needs a new home.
