Doug Blair Peterson, longtime San Diego resident, San Diego Yacht Club member, and trendsetting yacht designer, died June 26 after a long bout with cancer at the age of 71 years (1945-2017).

Peterson, who will be inducted into the America’s Cup Hall of Fame later this year, is survived by four children — Mark, Jamie, Laura and Julia. Former associate Paul Bishop shares this tribute.
