Ruben attempts to sail solo across the Atlantic Ocean to raise awareness and funding for MS. Today, it is unknown what exactly causes MS. Today, a cure for MS is non-existent.

Through fundraising (BuyAMile & YourNameOnMySail) you can help us find a cure for


Multiple Sclerosis. supports Ruben by Wrapping his sailboat with this eye-catching graphics

We wish Ruben all the best ! 




I attempt to sail solo across the North and South Atlantich Ocean in a sailing yacht of only 6.5 meters in length. If I succeed, I become the first Belgian ever to do so. A challenge on the earth’s most extreme environment. A confrontation between Mother Nature and myself.

I will set sail on the 1st of October 2016. From the port of Nieuwpoort (Belgium) I sail a southerly course to Cape Town (South Africa). Including one pit stop in Salvador de Bahia (Brazil). 

14.852 kilometres – 60 days alone on board – Man vs. Nature – Challenge accepted?


Being healthy! Although it seems normal to most of us, it isn’t. Every day I witness with my own eyes what it means to live with Multiple Sclerosis. MS is a paralysis disease caused by a distortion in the central nervous system. The cause of MS however is yet to be discovered, making it impossible to find a cure for MS. My dad has MS.

As time passes people with MS loose more and more control over their own body. With your support we can help doctors find a cure for MS. Help me to support all people living with MS. I challenge you to step on board of SailingChallenge4MS, challenge accepted?
