Loes

Loes, flexible crew

Loes has been part of the flexible crew for many years, she was there at the start as the girlfriend of Gijs and now has her seafaring papers as watch leader.

Loes started sailing long before she met Gijs or the Tecla on small boats on the Friesian lakes. She is very active in outdoor sports and when she is not sailing she is works as Physiotherapist in Holland.

Loes sailed to Ireland with us the first time we went abroad with the Tecla and she was on board for most of our Trans Atlantic Challenge in 2009. Loes was on board during 9 months of our world circumnavigation, sailing from Brazil to New Zealand and after that 3 more months in Brazil.
