The story of how it began

Sailing Holland is the owner of Volvo 65 Janssen de Jong, a collaboration of professionals. The collaboration started in 2013 with Gideon Messink and Anita van Oeveren. In close collaboration with the 8-fold participant in The Ocean Race Bouwe Bekking. Together they had a dream to participate in the Volvo Ocean Race 2014 -15 with a Dutch boat and an experienced team. Together they went looking for sponsors. Not a sponsor for the entire campaign, but different sponsors who can reinforce each other, work together as a team and go for the highest possible result.

Sailing Holland has now participated in the Volvo Ocean Race twice and is now preparing for the next edition of The Ocean Race 2022-23.

The main goal of Sailing Holland now is to train young enthusiastic people who have the dream of sailing an Ocean Race. Coached by professionals, there is a group of talents who sail as crew on the VO65. The goal is talent development so that more Dutch sailors can participate in the Ocean Race.

The entire set of sails on Volvo 65 Janssen de Jong is produced by North Sails using their patented 3Di technology. The sails are made of RAW760 Ultra PE/Aramid. According to the class rules, carbon can not be used in the sails. carbon can restrict the satellite connection. A novelty to the Volvo 70’s is the outriggers. They make it possible to move the sheeting point of the headsail outwards. The Volvo 65 often sails triple-headed, i.e. with three headsails, which creates a deep sail pressure point with maximum sail area.
