Ivy sailing at Westray

This is a photo of the "Ivy" from John P Drevers collection.
When this photo was taken by a friend of John's sister in law at a Westray Regatta, it was sailed by John Drever (baker John)who is in the boat, along with Jackie Mowat and his son John. John P thinks this is in 1966 as John Drever bought the "Puffin" from him for the following sailing season. John Drever has never sailed in a Hope Regatta.
See picture #16626 entered by Bill Sinclair, see the comments and compare this boat with the boat in front. Check the similarity in the shape, colours, rigging (down to the unusual plywood strengthening plate on the aft side of the mast), marks along the reefing line of the mainsail and the people in the boat.
