Skipper CV

Well known in sailing from their Worlds 2015 winning Swan 45 campaign, the Van Uden company has teamed up with the Royal Maas Yacht Club (from Rotterdam, one of The Netherlands' oldest and most active yacht clubs) and 3 x Volvo Ocean Racer Gerd-Jan 'Johnny' Poortman, who raced from Southampton for years. Their 'Rotterdam Offshore Sailing Team' focusses completely on bringing dinghy youth from Rotterdam to the fantastic scene of offshore racing. The youth team is preparing for the Fastnet Race. The Cowes Week team is a 'reunion' of 'old' Van Uden team members.

Boat CV

Formerly Cape Fling and Shakti, this Ker 46 was re-named Van Uden beginning this year. Now Van Uden is the weapon of choice of the Rotterdam Offshore Sailing Team.
