The Dutch offshore racing foundation Holland Ocean Racing is led by ex Volvo Ocean Race skipper Hans Bouscholte and is offering young sailing talents a Big Boat educational platform via the Ocean Races Academy. These sailors will be taught the skills to become Ocean Sailors. By training and mastering theory skills with the Ocean Races Academy and racing in international races they prepair for The Ocean Race 2021/2022.

Our core crew consists of young talents between 15 and 30 years old and professionals as skipper, co-skipper and navigator. When you are a skilled sailor and join us in our events, you will be part of the core crew of that event. When you have no or limited racing experience, you are very welcome on board and you will be guided by one of our talents in a buddy system to learn as much as possible.

We offer several RORC races and offshore experiences which you can join!

Apart from that we are prepairing for the Sydney-Hobart, Transpac, Transatlantic and Carribean 600.
