The new skipper of the Passaat

Meet Joris van Zoest

The Passaat has a new skipper; The experienced Joris van Zoest is ready to give you an unforgettable sailing trip.

Since childhood, Joris spent most of his time on the water. As a son of a sailmaker, he quickly came in contact with sailing and learned a lot from sailing on open boats and yachts.

After studying network management, he found out that working in an office was not for him. In 2013 he changed course and decided to work as a sailor in “The brown fleet”. From 2017 he started as a skipper on the tjalk De Overwinning, where he has been sailing with his fiancĂ© Anna for the past years. Now it’s time for a new challenge and he can’t wait to get started on the Passaat.

Joris is a fanatic skipper who likes to explain sailing, but can also tell you a lot about the beautiful places of the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer. Are you coming to meet Joris soon?
