Meet the author, Ron Holland will be at Haslam’s Bookstore on Nov 10, 2pm to sign copies of his memoir All The Oceans – Designing by the seat of my pants.
Award-winning yacht designer Ron Holland drew his first yacht at 19 years of age. He rapidly made a name for himself, after winning the St. Petersburg Yacht Club ¼ Ton Mid Winter Series in 1972. This milestone positioned Holland as one of the most successful and sought-after designers in the highly competitive world of international ocean racing, before advancing to bigger things. His seminal influence on the then-new category of sailing superyachts, those toys of the rich and super-rich, brought him fresh success, and an introduction to a world of fascinating international personalities: business tycoons, royalty and rock stars. For over 50 years Ron’s innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing.
