Folkert Schoots – YPY The Netherlands Founding President

Our Chapter

Young Professionals in Yachting The Netherlands quarterly assemblies provide a consistent platform for its members to interact with one another and create lasting relationships – professionally and personally. Following in the footsteps of well-established chapters, so too did the success of YPY The Netherlands inspire a new wave of young professionals in the international yachting sector to come together with new groups being formed in New Zealand and Germany in its wake.
