I competed in the Middle Sea Race in 2009 and it is an event that makes a big impression on you. The culture the scenery, even the harbour alone is stunning; you feel like you are in Julius Caesar’s Rome!

I have been sailing since I was nine years old when I joined the Sea Scouts in Holland – I’m Dutch. As I got older I rented boats and after university I sailed as a charter skipper in Greece during my holidays. Later on, I took  year out to work as a trainee skipper for Global Yacht Racing whilst training for my Yachtmaster. During that year I did plenty of racing including the Middle Sea Race, Antigua Race Week, Cowes Week and other regattas.Working in the yachting industry for a short period was valuable in many ways but as well as teaching me new techniques the experience generated a great network of contacts with whom Im still in touch. I competed in the Middle Sea Race in 2009 and it is an event that makes a big impression on you. The culture the scenery, even the harbour alone is stunning; you feel like you are in Julius Caesar’s Rome! The race itself is superb too, one of my best moments was sitting on deck watching Mount Etna spitting lava and wondering what it would be like when the volcano really blew. And then it did. It was incredible.
