Arjan van Dijk
I am Arjan van Dijk and I am a watersports enthusiast at heart. I love everything that floats, sails or swims. As a child, I grew up in Friesland and already built rafts to sail the village canals. I became a sailing instructor as a student and later followed various skipper training courses for the traditional Dutch sailing trade (the so-called 'Bruine Vloot '). Since 2013 I have my own ship. Firstly clipper 'De Twee Gebroeders' and since 2018 clipper 'De Groninger'. It is a beautiful two-masted sailing clipper that has always sailed on the German Wadden Sea.
In the winter, I work as a coach and motivational speaker. Partly for international companies with big diversity in cultures. I also like to use my intercultural communicationskills on board. Together with a small staff of fantastic sailors and programme supervisors, I create unforgettable adventures on the Frisian Lakes, IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea.
I welcome you aboard!
