Uffa author talk scaled

Join us at the Royal London Yacht Club, where Uffa Fox himself was a member, to hear author Malcolm Turner talk about his new biography.

Tickets £10 include a glass of fizz on arrival.

Uffa Fox was the most celebrated and successful yacht designer in the World.

Much more than that he was an irrepressible extrovert and novel thinker, as well as a singer, musician, journalist, author, painter, sportsman, campaigner, controversial business man and friend of royalty.

This new biography, the first for fifty years, celebrates a Universal Man who not only changed his sport, his Island and the lives of his friends, but also left an unfillable void.

Such people are rare and his story deserves to be remembered
