Ron Hol­land, one of the world’s mo­st win­ning pro­ject de­si­gners has fi­nal­ly ma­de ti­me and found the ener­gy to tell us about him­self. The book is writ­ten all in fir­st per­son and was pu­bli­shed in Spring 2018, it con­tains loads of anec­do­tes, me­mo­ries, pic­tu­res and sket­ches whi­ch wit­ness and back up the lo­ve he has for the sea and for his boa­ts. Ho­we­ver it mu­st be said that prior to be­co­ming a de­si­gner Ron Hol­land has been a ya­ch­tsman, and a pro­ven har­dy ra­cer to the ex­tent that in 2017 aged 70 he re­pre­sen­ted the Royal New Zea­land Ya­cht Club Squa­dron du­ring the 6 me­tre Class World Cham­pion­ship held in Van­cou­ver his adop­ti­ve ci­ty. If the sco­res of boa­ts he ini­tial­led are fa­mous, not as mu­ch can be said of the nu­me­rous sou­ve­nirs and sto­red da­ta he di­sclo­sed thanks to whi­ch it was pos­si­ble to re­con­nect the mo­re im­por­tant pha­ses of his pro­fes­sio­nal and ya­ch­tsman’s li­fe. Ma­ny of the sket­ches, dra­wings, let­ters, com­me­mo­ra­ti­ve pla­ques and mo­re are in­si­de the book. Na­tu­ral­ly his boa­ts are the­re as well from his smal­le­st Whi­te rab­bit to his cur­rent me­ga mo­tor sai­lors. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion: www.all­theo­cean­sbook.com
