Walking on Water

Client: Seafarer Books

Skills: Vector drawing

Geoff Holt is the first quadriplegic yachtsman to have sailed single-handed round Great Britain. His book Walking on Water describes that achievement and the difficulties he had previously overcome since breaking his neck in a diving accident at the age of 19. The design brief, for a full book layout and cover design, included these illustrations – of Geoff’s trimaran dinghy Freethinker and a diagrammatic explanation of the spinal injury he had sustained.
