For the past two years researchers at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia have been searching historical records and interviewing descendants about the individuals who lost their lives on board the coastal liner SS Princess Sophia. This book pays tribute to these many men, women and children who died so suddenly as a result of the tragic sinking. The loss of so many passengers and crew left behind a cascading array of shattered lives, missed opportunities and broken dreams.
The book documents the story about the ship; biographies of the people; the impact on Yukon River sternwheelers; the lone survivor; and prophetic last poems by one of the ship's passengers.

THIS MONTH'S SPEAKER: RON HOLLAND, MARCH 28
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Celebrated yacht designer Ron Holland drew his first yacht at 19 years of age. He rapidly made a name for himself as one of the most successful and sought-after designers in the highly competitive world of international ocean racing, before advancing to bigger things. His seminal influence on the then-new category of superyachts, those toys of the rich and super-rich, brought him fresh success and an introduction to a world of fascinating personalities: business tycoons, royalty, and rock stars. For over 50 years, Ron’s innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing. His most recent accolade is the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Boat International Media at the Design and Innovation Awards in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
Ron Holland lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. He arrived in Vancouver after having spent over 40 years in County Cork, Ireland, after an invitation to go for the weekend. Ron is a father, grandfather, still races boats, and continues to travel to any port that calls him.
