Becoming European Champion in 2007 in the Laser 4.7 was my first big win and made me beleive in a real sailing career. In the Olympic Laser Radial class I became ISAF youth World champion and youth European Champion, but as I'm quite short, my length prevented me from getting to the real top in the seniors Laser Radial. In spring 2013 I got the chance to start an Olympic campaign in the 470 with Marieke Jongens, a very experienced 470 crew. Since then we've been making amazing progress resulting in a 6th place at the Worlds in Santander 2014, on our way to a medal at the Olympics in Rio.
As my parents have their own sail shop, Aqua Shop Kampen, in the Netherlands, I learned about Julbo when they became dealer. To me Julbo has always been the best brand for on water sports activities with their specific lenses. And still the Julbo lenses help us keeping the best view on the water.> Visit the official site
