1980 plan FARR design #82, sister ship d'Espada, construit en sandwich klegecell-polyester par Cookson Boats en New Zealand, coût estimé: 180 000 FF

 

From Dutch QT Facebook 2017: "'Anchor Challenge' was one of several boats built to Bruce Farr's 1978 Quarter Ton design, the first of his boats in this class since the 727 and aimed specifically at the 1979 Quarter Ton Cup in Italy. It was also the first Farr design to emerge after the changes to the IOR in November 1978 - Farr commented at the time that the earlier light displacement Quarter Tonners were penalised less by the new displacement-length factor included in the rule changes than larger yachts, but even so, his previous style of yacht would have incurred too great a penalty to be competitive. 
As a result, Design 82 was slightly heavier than the 727, with slightly more beam and considerably more sail area. The longer overhang made her a longer yacht overall as well.
'Anchor Challenge' was built in New Zealand by Cookson Boats (along with sistership 'Hot Number') for Max Tremaine to contest the 1980 edition of the Quarter Ton Cup, hosted by the Panmure Yacht and Boating Club in Auckland. 'Anchor Challenge' was the second yacht built by Cookson's, and was built in Kevlar composite.
'Anchor Challenge' proved to be one of the fastest of the new Quarter Tonners launched for the series, which included a new Laurie Davidson design 'Hellaby' (skippered by Tony Bouzaid). She started off by winning the 1980 Feltex Regatta by a large margin, and then went on to win the New Zealand Quarter Ton Cup trials, held mostly in light airs, with five straight guns. 
'Anchor Challenge' was sold after the Cup to the US and spent the next 15 years around the New York area. She was then found in Key West by English yachtsman Peter Morton who took the boat to England to join the recent revival of the European Quarter Ton fleet. She was later revamped with an extension to her aft deck (to help keep the bow up downwind) and optimised under IRC and went on to win the Quarter Ton Cup in 2009.
