Johannes Willem "Jan Willem" van den Hondel (born 24 July 1957 in Gouda) is a sailor from the Netherlands. Since the Netherlands boycotted the Moscow Olympic Games Van den Hondel represented his National Olympic Committee at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Tallinn, USSR under the Dutch NOC flag. With Henk van Gent as helmsman, Van den Hondel took the 4th place in the 470.

Controversy[edit]

Several countries boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics, others like France did not go since they found the competition devaluated. As result only half of the expected fleet was present during the Olympic regattas.
