Hello, I am Jan Luijks, a projectmanager in daily life, and father of a son (15 years old). I am a gentle guy, with a good sense of responsibility, open minded, willing to learn and above all a teamplayer. Coastal and off shore sailing is one of my major goals in life. In 2016 I have sailed from the Azores, via the south of England, back to The Netherlands. In November 2017 I did the ARC1500 (Portmouth VA - Totola BVI), and in November/December 2018 the ARC+ (Las Palmas - Mindelo - Rodney Bay). In February 2019 I graduated for my RYA Yachtmaster Ocean. I am looking forward to get in contact with you
