I'm Sophie, a 40 year old, sporting Dutch woman with a good sense of humour, great energy and a positive attitude. A few years back I got in touch with sailing again and since then I have been sailing. First on a VO60 (ambassador of the Ocean Race Academy), did some regatta's in the Carib and around Ibiza In the Netherlands I joint a racing team (IMX38) with whom I have been sailing various races over the last couple of years. Something I still aim to do is a trans-Atlantic crossing and since I'm in between jobs at the moment, it's a perfect match! Other than Dutch I speak English, am willing to learn, love to take on anything that needs to be done and to end with are really looking forward to go on this adventure!
