When I was 12, I was wrestler, as all of my older brothers did. I was 17, when I had an injury on my knee and had to change for something else. By the time I started kayaking, and than a little later canoeing. This speed canoe was my primary sport until my age of 27. When I retired from canoe, I started sailing in my club, where I was boat builder as my occupation. Since the time this is my life. Finn dinghy first, then cruising offshore, and the 60 footers one after the others so far. This is a life in a couple of sentences.
