O nas

Cześć, nazywam się

Eric van der Vegt

I founded Sailing Dutchman out of love for sailing. I have been sailing since I was 6 years old. Like most sailors I started with the famous Optimist. As years passed, the boats became bigger, faster and more challenging. From Optimist to Laser to 470’s and later my biggest passion; the catamarans. Later in life I crossed over to sailing yachts.

By now I have sailed over 10.000 miles at different seas and oceans on various ships. Motor- and sailing Vessels. I have the following competences:

  • RYA Yachtmaster Offshore with commercial endorsment MCA
  • RYA YM Cruising Instructor
  • International Certificate of Competence
  • Power Boat 1 and 2
  • First Aid certificate
  • Sea Survival
  • SRC/Marifoon/Marcom B

Next to being a professional sailor and instructor I am a passionate cook and musician. I want to make sure that the people that sail with me are having a great time.
