Ron Holland! Guess what?

Ron was in town last week. That is Ron Holland, one of the most talented Yacht Designer in the world. We go back something like 45 years. First, I met him at the Tower, the Carter Offshore office; submarine observation look out for U. Boats during WW11. At the time Dick Carter was at the top of the rarified world of yacht design and we always had a string of visitors and clients. Subsequently, I saw him in Sardinia during the 1973 One Ton World Championship. Where Ydra, a Carter boat won. Let to be said that another upcoming young yacht designer; Doug Peterson stole the show by coming in second, but would have won the event except for a mistake in navigation.
