Historical and Technical Comments. Petán was designed by Willian Fife and built at the Hermanos Sagredo boatyard in Bilbao.

Her hull design is thought to be the ultimate First Rule 8m yacht and acknowledged to be hydro dynamically as good as a yacht could be at that time. She does not ride waves, but cuts through them and she produces no wake until near her maximum hull speed.

The distinctive Fife tumblehome is thought to be one of the secrets of her speed.

Petán had the most innovative rig design of all First Rule yachts. She carries a Marconi Bermudan rig. As originally drawn she carries 1,248 sq feet of sail on a 42 ft mast, 35 ft boom.

Built for an Spanish aristocrat called Zubiría marquise, who gave her the distinctive original name Sogalinda VII. Petan participated in many classic boat regattas in her area, some of them, against The Spanish king, Alfonso XIII.

I have some historical pictures and newspaper references of the boat
