From January 2002 through January 2003,  Peter worked full-time for Team Dennis Conner's effort to win the America's Cup for the New York Yacht Club.  Training took place in Long Beach, CA through August and then Auckland, New Zealand for the racing.   The team was eliminated in the quarterfinal round of the Louis Vuitton Cup.  Peter served on the team's afterguard and in addition to his racing duties, was in charge of the instrument system,  data collection and analysis and the team's weather program.   Here's a few pictures courtesy of Stars & Stripes rules advisor and sometimes photographer, Marianne Middelthon.
