Jon Holt




Jon founded the Scaramouche Sailing Trust and leads outdoor education at a London City Academy. With small boats and their 45ft Admiral’s Cup boat, Scaramouche, he has led young sailors to compete successfully in major races, including the Round the Island and Fastnet. In 2020, Jon was the winner of the Yachting Journalists Association MS Amlin International Sailor of the Decade Award, which recognises the achievements of those who have had the greatest positive impact on sailing.
