Juillet, "Voyage avec l'ancien pilote de Whitbread ''Kings Legend'', En tant que skipper avec un casting de 5 célèbres Néerlandais, 3 équipage et 4 cameramen, une distance de 2500 Nm traversant l'Atlantique Nord dans des circonstances difficiles pour un nouveau programme TV, mon ultime test pour servir le leadership était en bas pour mettre. Ci-dessous un court reportage, plus tard dans l'année en 7 ou 8 épisodes télévisés sur SBS6. Merci aux dirigeants d'attente Erik van Vuuren et Willem Jan Landman. Merci casting et merci à l'équipe de caméra."
