Nationality: Netherlands
Currently based in: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 3000 ocean miles / 2500 coastal miles
I am Cornelis, 29 years old and I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Very experienced sailor: have been sailing since I was a child and obtained diplomas in different categories. Done lots of sailing in the Netherlands, both on inland water as well as on the Wadden Sea and North Sea. In January 2020, I sailed a trans-Atlantic leg from Lanzarote to St. Lucia. I am always on the lookout for worldwide sailing opportunities, and since I enjoyed the Atlantic crossing a lot, would not hesitate to do another one. I love to travel, to cook and to learn new skills. As a person, I am enthusiastic, flexible, tidy and always good-spirited and positive. I live in Amsterdam and work in consultancy, which allows me to get some time off work. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions! E-mail: [email protected]
