Dick Newick was possibly the 20th century's most influential multihull designer. Now aficionados of multihulls - including trimarans, catamarans and proas - can now enjoy reading his official biography. This book takes readers through his early years, including kayak building and sailing, and then traveling throughout Europe in the years following WW II. Then we get to follow Dick's move to the Caribbean to operate a successful charter business. It was here he began building and sailing multihulls for his own use ... and then clients who desired what were possibly, in their time, some of the most cutting-edge multi-hulled boats seen anywhere in the world. In these pages, Dick Newick provides a glimpse into his family life, shares many personal stories, and talks extensively about his own boat design philosophy and achievements in the world of multihulls.
