Emma Plasschaert

"Ostend is my hometown, I grew up there, learned to sail there and call it my home despite the many trips and being away from Belgium. As a little girl in the Optimist we sailed at sea departing from Oosteroever in Ostend. The harbour has always fascinated me and has a kind of magnetic attraction. So, partnering with Port Oostende is the perfect fit. Pride in the city, organisation and progress is what we have in common!"
