About Sam

My name is Sam Vandormael and I’m a full-time Laser Standard sailor. Sailing is a bit of a family thing in the Vandormael household. Both my parents were sailors and I have been lucky enough that they shared their experience with me and introduced me to the sport.

After years of them taking me all around the world it is now my turn to do it together with the VYF Olympic team and achieve my goal of going to the Olympic Games in 2020.
