Sir Peter Blake’s prominence in the Pop art movement saw him becoming one of Britain’s best known pop artists in the late 1950s. Inspired by popular culture, Blake is celebrated for his co-creation of the Beatles’ iconic ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ record sleeve in 1967, with his then wife, Jann Haworth.
In 1964, Blake was commissioned by Paul McCartney to create an artwork for his Mull of Kintyre estate. Deciding to depict a stag, Blake looked to Sir Edwin Landseer’s ‘Monarch of the Glen’ (1851) for inspiration…

A time lapse video recording the installation of NZL32 Black Magic into Voyager New Zealand Maritime Museum in August 2009. NZL32 forms the centerpiece of the ‘Blue Water Black Magic – A Tribute to Sir Peter Blake’ exhibition, which opened on 12 December 2009.
WWF’s Pandamonium project, in collaboration with Artwise Curators, invited top British artists and designers to create innovative and memorable artworks out of old panda collection boxes – helping spread WWF’s message that the worlds rapidly changing climate affects people, wildlife and the natural world.
Sir Peter Blake’s piece is titled ‘World Wrestling Federation’. Blake says: “I think I’ve made the piece with a sense of humour and jest, and in a way re-airing the question: ‘What does WWF stand for?’. What my little bear is doing is making a mistake…. thinking that it means World Wrestling Federation, whereas the big ‘WWF’ certainly implies it’s not that.”
The legacy of Kiwi, Sir Peter Blake, lives on through his son who is a reporter for the Volvo Ocean Race. Blake is the only skipper to have one every leg back to back during the 1989/1990 Around the World Race. A record that still stands today.

THE SIR PETER BLAKE DREAM EMBRACED
The regatta takes on more than just a name from Sir Peter Blake. It also embraces his values, including the environment, leadership and fair play. The desire is for this to be the leading national event for centreboard classes and the highlight of the sailing calendar every year (particularly for young sailors, many of whom will never have been to an event with an atmosphere like this one).
