SAUSALITO YACHT CLUB WITH RON HOLLAND | WHITBREAD AROUND THE WORLD RACE
A virtual event with Sausalito Yacht Club:
Sausalito Yacht Club presents an evening with Ron Holland and the Whitbread Around the World Race. A virtual evening, with one of the most influential yacht designers of our time.
Discover the challenges a yacht designer faces when designing an entry with the strength and speed necessary to race across oceans.
During his illustrious career Ron Holland designed some of the most sought after racer/cruisers, maxis and megayachts, including several Fastnet Race winners and 247 foot Mirabella V , which was in 2003, the largest single-masted sailing yacht ever built.
Following his presentation, we will air a video documentary of the 1985 – 1986 Whitbread Round the World Race – the forth Whitbread Race ever. Ron Holland designed two successful boats in that race.
