Hi i'm Rinse (35), Sailing is my passion in all sort of ways. I started sailing in an optimist, a small dinghy. Currently national champion of the laser radial masters. My dad owned a boat 31 feet and as a coastal skipper I went from the Netherlands to France, Denmark, Germany, England. But we don't have to go far for a nice sailing experience. We have the waddenzee, which is a national park, when the tide is out you can 'dry-up' and park your boat on the sea-bottom. A beautiful experience, walking around your boat. But I have a dream to cross the ocean from the canaries to caribbean. Hopefully you can help me with that :) Aside from holiday sailing, I sailed the Tour the France a la Voile in the Farr 30 two times. J70 and Melges 24 regattas in Europe. My profession is technical physician and clinical perfusionist (heart-lung machine) in training. Currently I'm helping a friend to install openplotter of a pi and try to get the weatherfax working. Weahter routing from grib files is currently working. I soldered my own active antenna, but that still needs some fine tuning. I am really willing to learn how to navigate with a sextant, I bought one recently, but it is day in day out cloudy such that is hard to practice.
