Maritime researches and text production
It is no coincidence that yachting is interesting for me also from an environmental perspective. So there are two topics which have my special interest since a few years. I research about them with lots of pleasure and interest, in four languages. And I publish big part of my results continuously on three different webportals, in English:

Yacht Recycling

What happens to pleasure craft up to, say, 50 ft length once they have reached their end of life? Six millions cruising in and near European waters alone is an impressive number (an estimate of ICOMIA) . An exciting new industry branch is coming up in the nautical world. And its promoters are considered crankpots and get ridiculed, just like those who advocated computer and car recycling back then. Not for long any more, I dare write. See for yourself:



Sailing and the environment: Sailors21
What is the impact of sailing and motor yachts on our (mainly: maritime) ecosystems? How can harmful impacts get minimised while still sailing with pleasure? Can a yacht be powered by renewables, still looking like a yacht? And what are clean regattas? See here:



A worldwide business directory of natical companies and organisations offering sustainable products and services for the yachtinng world. Yacht Design, renewable energies aboard, eco-friendly maintenance products right up to yacht recycling. With Google Maps and other advanced search functions. The perfect complement to the other two websites mentioned here above:

Also, as volunteer contribution I translate web content, Dutch into German, for this association: Nautin.
They offer most recent nautical information for yachting among which the popular application Quicktide. The information presented on this web portal is gathered and reviewed with great accuracy by a diverse group of active sailors. They live and sail in the entire Netherlands right up to the German coast:
