My name is Lonneke and I have been passionate about sailing my whole life. It started when I was only a few weeks on board with my parents. As soon as I could swim I got my own Optimist and ever since I have been regatta sailing, instructing and coaching in many different boats. I’ve done both National and International regattas and sailed on many different lakes and seas around the world. Next to sailing, I have a passion for travelling. One of my dreams for the past years is to combine a sailing challenge and travelling into one adventure: crossing the Atlantic Ocean and exploring new places from the water. Starting November, I will take an 8months sabbatical from my job as Product Manager at Spotify to pursue my dream. After the ARC crossing from east to west, I’ll be looking for opportunities to sail around the Caribbean. I am flexible in timing and location, can offer a wide range of sailing experience and are easy going with a positive attitude. Looking forward to meeting you on the water!
