Biography

Joop Carp and fellow crew member [Bernard Carp] were brothers. After his gold medal in 1920 in the 6.5 m class, Joop won another bronze medal in the 6 m class in 1924 together with his boat Willem Six. In 1921, he graduated from Leiden University to become a lawyer. Initially, he worked as vice-president for Fokker aircrafts. After that he founded the trading company Carp & Co. in Amsterdam, exploiting inventions and became friendly with Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands (1911-2004). When his company opened an office in New York, that was where Carp spent most of his time. He was married to the future Olympic rider [Johanna Sybille Hall], also born Dutch. They were divorced and Joop Carp later emigrated to South Africa.
