When I was 7 weeks old I went to sea with my parents for the first time.
Since then I have spent almost every weekend and holiday on the water. When I was 13, I participated in my first offshore race at sea, the Colin Archer Memorial Race which starts in the Netherlands and finishes in Norway. From that moment on I was hooked on offshore racing. In the years that followed, I participated in all kinds of sailing competitions in my home country (the Netherlands) and abroad.
As of now I sailed over 60.000 miles (111.000 km) at sea. Sailing is my passion and my life. Since I first stepped on a Mini Transat boat as a young 12-year-old boy, I knew that one day I will do my own Mini Transat project. After spending years and years training on the water the moment is finally here. I am ready for my own Mini Transat Campaign!
