About the Rotterdam Offshore Sailing Team
The Royal Maas and infrastructure firm Van Uden Group have combined their forces to initiate a new Dutch offshore sailing team. The Rotterdam Offshore Sailing Team (ROST) is led by three-time Volvo Ocean Race veteran Gerd-Jan Poortman. The main goal of the project is to enable talented sailors to develop themselves in the international offshore sailing world. Currently, the team consists of talented sailors from the Rotterdam Region, sailing on a Ker 46. This is an ultimate carbonfibre sailing machine and one of the fastest vessels on the Dutch waters.
