Sailing Holland, owner of the VO65, is delighted with the cooperation and the involvement from the Royal Swedish Yachtclub and the Dutch Royal Yachtclub to set up a selection process with a high focus on young talents.
Gideon Messink – Sailing Holland: “For the past two season we have sailed around with the VO65 for the benefit of the World Childhood Foundation. It’s fantastic that we can continue our collaboration through the support of many in the coming season. With the prologue and in particular The Ocean Race Europe as the absolute highlight. In these for everyone uncertain times it gives us a bit of security and maybe even more important is the opportunity it provides to talented youth to gain ocean experience. There is a lot of talent in both Sweden and the Netherlands. Talent that we want to give a place on board to gain experience, especially with a view to the Ocean Race 2022-2023. We want to appear at the start again and compete for the prizes. As we have done in the past two editions. ”
