International Sailing Regatta’s

Since I started freelancing in 2012 I have been working for countless international sailing regatta’s and international sports events. I’m going to highlight a few of them to give you an idea of what I do and what I can offer you too. In 2013 and 2014 I was traveling the world as press officer for the Dutch Olympic sailing team, writing press releases, supporting the team and organising their media and PR. During The Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 I supported Dutch ocean racer Annemieke Bes planning and organising her PR activities.
