You can’t imagine it, but also the goliath of the team started sailing in an Optimist. In this boat he has sailed for many years and discovered his will to win. Besides an excellent sailor he is also the translator of the crew; as a twelve year old boy he moved to Divonne les Bains, where he sailed with his little “bathtub” on the Swiss mountain lakes. And after he outgrew the Optimist he has started sailing in the Laser in Singapore. With his knowledge, this international is ready for the next challenges; a new city, the study maritime officer and as cherry on the cake, Delft Challenge in the Diam 24.

Fun fact, this young guy is still a bit slender and insecure, but this will definitely change after a year of Delft Challenge trainings and workouts.
