After his holiday Michael van Gerwen will be busy studying in the coming weeks. The world number one wants to get his sailing license.

The Dutchman is looking to obtain a sailing license for small boats. RTL reporter Arjan van der Giessen visited him in his hotel room during the World Matchplay and spotted a book in his room. Van der Giessen asked Van Gerwen about his plans.

“I have only just started. On the 1st of September I have to go on a course. Then I have to make sure I know, said Van Gerwen referring to the course book.

Whether the three-time world champion plans to buy a boat? ”Maybe in the future. I just like to have it (the boat license). I find water fascinating anyway. It is a hobby of mine and I also enjoy fishing”, the 31-year-old added.
