Dutch pro sailor, Scipio Houtman, joins Clean Sailors as Ambassador

Scipio Houtman joins Clean Sailors

We are very excited to share that Dutch professional sailor, Scipio Houtman, has joined our Clean Sailors crew as an Ambassador 

Scipio is a Dutch professional sailor who has been sailing his entire life. From being onboard with his parents as a baby, Scipio began taking the helm himself in an Optimist, when he was 7 years old.

Since then, he’s sailed and competed globally in a whole variety of boats including the Laser4.7, Laser Radial, 49er FX, 49er, Nacra17 and 69F, and he’s now back in the 49er working on his Olympic campaign.

He holds the 69F speed record at 34.9 knots (wowsers!) with his team having also won first place in the Youth Foiling Gold Cup 2021.

We are delighted to welcome him to our Clean Sailors crew and look forward to all we can achieve together for both the Dutch sailing community and for young sailors

Welcome, Scipio!
