How this site is arisen and
especially the name of the site
The origin of the name of this site starts with my
father, René Timmerman.
In the beginning of the nineties my father is getting very
enthusiastic about sailing. He gets invited by a
colleague to come sailing on this boat during
Ascension day. This is a yearly returning trip with
colleagues and acquaintances. My father is getting
more and more enthusiastic and is carefully trying
to get my mother enthusiastic as well.
Eventually he succeeded in this and
after years of camping, my parents decide to buy a
sailing-yacht in the end of 1999.
After the first preparing years of secondary education in
Naaldwijk, a choice had to be made for a specialisation. My
school advised me to become a pastry-cook. This was not
really what I wanted.
After spending one night on the
internet, I found the Shipping and
College in Rotterdam. They offered
the education of Rhine- and
inland. Because I had spent so much time on the water,
during the sailing trips with my parents I liked the idea of
becoming a navigating officer. After graduating on my
secondary education in Naaldwijk, I continued with the
education to become a navigating officer at the STC in
Rotterdam. In June 2006 I graduated.
After an internship I got a job at MSTrinagle BV. This is a ……… that
transports coals, gravel and containers between the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
A winner 950 (31 ft), which is delivered in the end of April 2000.
This new acquisition caused a dilemma, because the
yacht should get a name. My mother was creative and
invented a combination of letters from our
Els-PIm-MArije-REné, so Epimare, this became the name of
our sailing-yacht and is baptised on the 29th of April 2000.
Ever since we sail the
Dutch waters with this sailing-yacht.
First our berth was in
Hellevoetsluis, but since 2007 Andijk became our home
Now something about me and the site
My hobby’s, are next to sailing, photographing and
computers. Because of a combination of these hobby’s, this
site is arisen.
During my trips on board of the
Triangle I try to make unique photo’s and put them on this
site. Furthermore I take pictures during holidays and other
events, such as the world harbour days in
It’s also possible to send in
pictures. I can put them on this website.
