Skipper Jeroen Valk
Even though Jeroen Valk is the youngest skipper that the Zorg met Vlijt has ever had, he is an old hand in the business. He used to sail many competitions against his friend Cas Korver as captain of the ship De Onderneming. He has been preparing for the new season together with the previous skipper Jonas.
What is an ideal trip with the Zorg met Vlijt like?
“The sense of togetherness and unity is the best feeling. Not just sailing together, but also the cooking, eating, determining the routes."
“I personally enjoy visiting the villages, the historical centers of Enkhuizen, Stavoren, Edam, Medemblik, Hoorn, Makkum, Harlingen; they bring history alive.”
“Berthing on a wad and exploring the sandbank. Looking for mussels and cockles together and then cooking them. Taking in the scenery, from the islands to the vast night sky. The beauty and versatility is hard to capture in words."
