About the Author

Lisette Vos is an experienced journalist, who has worked for various water sports magazines in the Netherlands. She likes to explore the Dutch waters with her motorboat, often accompanied by her two nieces. The idea for this book arose out of the need to give her nieces something to do while out on the water. She discovered there wasn't much available so she decided to write it herself.
