Brian Petersen purchased the Elliott 50 in 2015 and contested the 2016 Auckland Fiji, and 2016 Groupama Race, then the Round North Island two-handed in 2017, taking line honours in all four legs. Won the Auckland Jack Tar Regatta on PHRF. Petersen also competed in the2003 and 2007 Melbourne Osaka Races with Maverick II, taking line honours in the earlier race.
