Krijn is a passionate sailor from Holland with nearly 40 years of sailing experience. He started sailing when he was 5 years old with dinghy boats – the optimist and laser. He also sailed with his parents on keel yachts.
At the age of 15, he joined his father and his sailing friends for sailing regattas with keel yachts in Holland. At the age of 18, he used his knowledge gained from racing and designed his ﬁrst 22 feet racing boat together with the designer from Van De Stadt Design. One year later, he started to build the boat all by himself.
Upon the completion of the boat building, he started with inshore racing for both national and international competition with good result.
Later on, he started oﬀshore racing for international regattas with boats ranging from 34-‐43 feet. His sailing courses covered the Netherlands, France, England, Ireland, Norway and Belgium etc. In 2014, Krijn sailed in the China Cup held in Shenzhen, China with LingShui Team from YOMOVO Club.
Over the years, Krijn developed himself as an all-‐round sailor for all the positions of sailing onboard.
His passion for sailing is to get the best out of the boat and the team!
