Cornelis Hin was the father of the other crew members Johan and Frans Hin. Hin was the son of a pilot skipper, and initially worked as a teacher, but in 1905 he founded a hosiery mill in Haarlem. Cornelis sailed the first race, and the second race that was later repeated, replacing his younger son Frans. In 1923, he became the first Dutch Champion in the 12 ft class. In 1924, he was entered for the Monotype Class but acquired rheumatism and was replaced by his son, Johan, who was his reserve. Beside sailing, Cornelis Hin was an enthusiastic official of the football club HFC Haarlem.
