Luc Overtoom – ‘A world trip with a mission’ – ‘Seven Seas’

Luc Overtoom sailed around the world in 2 years with his sailing boat “Cardo” with an extra mission: making a sailing dream come true and an international fundraising project for the VUmc Cancer Center Amsterdam (CCA). He made his childhood dream come true by sailing around the world after he lost his wife Trudy. They had planned this trip together, but fate decided otherwise. The book  “Seven Seas” – about mourning, resilience and adventure – was published at the end of October 2021 and quickly became a bestseller! In his book and in his lecture, he will talk about his world trip on board with 36 different passengers, but also about mourning and how you find strength in realising your dreams and seeking out adventure. Curious? Read more about Luc, his journey and his book here. (The book is for sale via the webshop and will also be available during the open day. The full amount will go to the CCA).

The Colin Archer Memorial Race is a 400 mile sea sailing race from Lauwersoog (Netherlands)– Larvic (Norway). During his Lecture, Paul will share practical tips and tricks for sea sailing competitions and answers questions such as: how do you prepare for such a sailing race?

After his years of expertise in the development of sails, he has several titles to his name in the Rainbow competition class and as a sea sailor.
