    Default Strider 35 ft. 10 tons (kim holman)

    I am thinking of buying a 35 foot Strider, and have got the original (November 1965) yachting monthly review. However I would like to talk to someone who has owed/sailed on one.

    Default Kim Holman fan club

    Well, there's a small and exclusive Kim Holman fan club around these parts, and as one of its members, I'm prepared to bet that the Strider sails like a witch.

    Next time, it'll all be different.

    I sail a 1958 long keel Van de Stadt, But the twister! lovely, lovely, lovely. I looked at a beauty on Wooden ship's books, needed more room though. But one of my favorite designers. Mike.

    I had a 1967 Strider 36 for several years but that was a Holman & Pye design: 1 ton cup racer. It sailed superbly and I had many enjoyable hours sailing past the Sunsail racers out of Portsmouth. She was called Zorina but I believe the owner after me renamed her Banshee.
    I took Zorina for several years to the YM Classic Rally while it was at Cowes. As with any old boat you needed to spend a lot of time maintaining her but the sailing experience was unique.

    Default Banshee

    I think the strider 36 (35) one ton cup classic, designed by Holman of Holman & Pye could well be your old boat, and would love to talk to you about her.

    She is for sale in Palma, mallorca, my plan would be to take 3 months off work and sail back to the solent (to overtake those sunsail caravans), with my wife and two year old son.
