|Nearly Midnight has been my much loved yacht for almost 10 years. This Holland 25 has introduced a lot of people to sailing on Lake Macquarie. She is a fabulous sailing boat with a racing pedigree. I updated the mast to a fractional rig that the America's Cup winning skipper, John Bertrand, designed for the boat with Ron Holland in 1979. I have talked to the yacht's builder, Doug Sharpin, over the years when trying to fine tune the boat. The boat is very roomy for her size and is also great to cruise in. My best memories are from the fun and competitive racing I have done in the company of my many good sailing friends.
