‘I WANT TO SAIL’
At 17 years of age, he travelled as a passenger on a container ship from Rotterdam to Sri Lanka. Since then, he knew for sure: ‘I want to sail!’ TOS is guiding Alexander van Bergen in his ‘journey’ from intern to captain at FAIRPLAY TOWAGE.
How did you end up as an intern at TOS?
‘In Belgium, you build up sailing hours outside of your study programme. So you apply for ‘sailing internships’ in the holiday periods or after your studies. After completing the Nautical College in Antwerp, I went to a career event where I came into contact with TOS. It was exactly the right moment. TOS was looking for trainees for their client FAIRPLAY. I started there in November 2013.’
