Pieter Taselaar Named US Sailing's Sailor of the Week
Portsmouth, RI
January 6, 2010
LYC member Pieter Taselaar became the second LYC member to be named US Sailing's Sailor of the Week. Taselaar, who won the 2009 Melges 32 World Championship with his team aboard Bliksem, plans to compete in regattas in Europe and the U.S. in 2010 before attempting to defend his title in San Francisco.
Taselaar and crew, aboard Bliksem, finished first out of 29 boats in the regatta held in Sardinia, Italy. They were one of three teams representing the U.S. Team Taselaar started out on a positive note by winning the Acura Miami Grand Prix in March. They followed this effort up with a pair of wins at the Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series regattas in Scarlino and Cagliari.
"A lot of our success last year had to do with preparation, teamwork, and avoiding the big mistake," explained Pieter. "We stayed cool under pressure as a team and sailed consistent races."
Apart from a busy 2010 race schedule, Pieter would like to try his hand in offshore racing like the Transpac or Sydney to Hobart Race in the future. Pieter loves the flexibility the racing sailor has. "I think this is what is so exciting about sailing. You can find your own level and do it in a family setting or professional setting; in dinghies or in 60-footers; alone or with a big team."
Pieter has added a fun twist to his team this year. His daughters, Amanda (18) and Claudia (14), will both crew on Bliksem at the Primo Cup in Monte Carlo. "I can't tell you how excited we all are about this," Pieter added.
...
Pieter has been sailing ever since his father put him in a sailboat when he was four-years-old. His father was a successful racer in The Netherlands, having won several major championships in Dutch national classes. Pieter feels fortunate to be able to pass this love for sailing on to his daughters.
Pieter remains grounded throughout his successes and future endeavors.
