TEAK LIFE HELPS HOLLAND COUPLE ENJOY LIFE ON MARTIN 60-FOOTER

Racing and recreational sailing are a way of life for Jet and Bjørn, a couple from Holland who have spent more than four decades together enjoying water sports. While sailing in the North Sea Regatta in Scheveningen 24 years ago, they spotted a huge white yacht that captured their attention. It turned out to be a 1996 Martin Marine 60-footer – the latest acquisition of German industrialist and yachtsman Wilhelm “Willi” Illbruck. The timeless boat, named Pinta Smeralda and designed by Judel Vrolijk, was built as a cruiser with a Volvo ocean hull and carbon construction. The couple never imagined they could afford such a ship, but they couldn’t get it out of their minds. Twelve years later they found out the Pinta Smeralda was for sale, and they jumped at the chance to purchase it.

The Dalhousie Sailing Team

Sansin Helps Sailing Team Reach New Heights

Sansin is proud to have been the 2019/2020 sponsor of The Dalhousie Sailing Team, a Tier 1 club at Dalhousie University, based in Halifax, Canada. The Dalhousie Sailing Team comprises four teams, including a Keel Boat and Dinghy team, with 35 sailors who practice for the chance to attend Regattas throughout the year, compete against other university teams and advance their professional sailing skills.

With Sansin’s sponsorship, the team was able to attend more regattas throughout the year and send more sailors to each competition. The year’s season ended with a big event in Florida, called the Mid-Winters Keel Boat Regatta, hosted by the Canadian Intercollegiate Sailing Association. Sansin congratulates the Dalhousie team for placing 2nd overall in this competitive race.

According to Mauraine Bos, the VP of Dalhousie Sailing Team, “As many know, sailing is not an inexpensive sport, so we are very grateful for the opportunities this sponsorship affords us.”
