Lark was previously owned by Tony Duchi, David Webb and possibly others? Lark was raced extensively by Tony Duchi, however I am unsure of any previous history. More recently Lark has done well in the One More Time Regatta and Ray Wallace Iron Man race, in 2007 the PCC Nationals were held in San Diego as part of the Kettenburg Regatta and Jean Alexander won the 2007 race, however his was the last PCC National held

Jean owns and maintains the boat and is learning how to do more of the engine maintenance herself. As with all boats there is always something to be painted or repaired. Lark is a fast boat, good in relatively light wind and goes well to weather.

About PCCs: They are fast cruising sloops. Kitten won the Honolulu Race in 1949. Cyane won a Bermuda Race. The construction is light but strong. Lark is Douglas fir over oak frames with bronze fastenings. The spars are hollow spruce and were built by Kettenburg. PCCs carry 7,000 lbs of lead in their keel. PCCs originally had gas engines however Lark now has a small diesel.
