The Tech IGs, Hoofers’ annual fall regatta, marks the end of the Hoofer racing season and determines the best Tech Sailor in the Galaxy! The regatta dates back to 1971 when it was won by 1968 Finn Gold Medalist Peter Barrett (whom the event was later named after). Peter Barrett won a Silver medal racing Finns in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. He would have won a Gold but, as the story goes, Peter disqualified himself from a race for lightly touching another boat, even though nobody else noticed. The Tech IG's trophy bears his name for "for excellence in sportsmanship during competition." He later won Gold in the 1968 Olympics. Since then, winning the event has become a mark of honor for all level of sailors from both the club and some of the best sailors from around the world.
