Emiel started sailing in Holland during early childhood in 1969 with his family, progressing to international regattas in the 505 dinghy class. Since the 2000 he has changed to bigger boats and regularly competed in club racing in Holland. He has participated twice in the Colin Archer race and has developed a longing for the Ocean, in the hope of long reaching legs, on beautiful ocean waves. He will be sailing as a double-hander: the outward 'AZ leg' with his brother Jan with whom he has been sailing for a very long time and the 'AB leg' with his friend Jan Leemans.
