Ron Holland - Yacht Designer and Author of ‘All The Oceans’
 
Award winning yacht designer Ron Holland drew his first yacht at 19 years of age, during his boat building apprenticeship in Auckland. After establishing Ron Holland Yacht Design in Ireland in 1974, Ron rapidly made a name for himself as one of the most successful and sought-after designers in the highly competitive world of international ocean racing, before advancing to bigger things.
 
For over 50 years Ron’s innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing. His most recent accolade is the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Boat International Media at the Design and Innovation Awards in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
 
Join Ron, at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club for a lively presentation with Q&A.
