"Pendragon was a development of Waverider, again built lightly in wood by Tim Gurr and finished in Auckland before being shipped to the States. Pendragon won the Three Quarter Ton Cup held in the light airs of British Columbia, beating special designs from Chance, Holland and others in conditions the light boat was not expected to excel.", see:

The alterations required to bring the yacht up to a One Ton rating (27.5ft) were, however, extensive. Further displacement was required to achieve the increased minimum centre of gravity factor. The sail plan was increased by approximately 20%, through the addition of a longer boom and a small bowsprit for larger headsails. A bigger centreboard was also fitted.
Picture from Facebook 2021, "The photos are thanks to Max Baquestae from a thread last year about Pendragon being on the market. In the stern shot of Pendragon in the slings, that is Laurie in the blue shirt on the right and I think that may be Paul Whiting on the left in the white shirt and sunglasses."

1979 North American One Ton Series, ?: 2 - 5 - 4 - 8 = 5e/15
One Ton Cup, Newport USA: 1 - 3 - 2 = 1er/12,
The yacht sailed with the centreboard pinned down to avoid the new moveable appendage factor penalty, and Pendragon was the only centreboard boat in Newport.

New Owner and new Name

2013 The yacht continues to sail and race (on the US West Coast I believe) under her new name Violetta, her original purple colour scheme has now given way to vivid pink, but she retains the distinctive bowsprit.
