My name is Lonneke and I have been passionate about sailing my whole life. It grew up with boats and as soon as I could swim I started in the Optimist. Ever since I have been regatta sailing in many different boats. I’ve done both National and International regattas around the world. I have have crossed the Atlantic twice and completed a Caribbean regatta season on various boats. I am an allrounder and have experience as 1st mate, watch-leader, tactician, bow, etc. Currently, I am working at Spotify and therefore I am not actively looking for opportunities. However, I would love to join boats as skipper or crew whenever some help is needed! Next to sailing, I have a passion for traveling. I am open minded, easy going, hard working, have a positive attitude and enjoy solving problems whether that is in my role as a Product Manager or on a sailing boat.
