When summer arrived in Newport, RI, Onne and his family were excited for their first hoist of the sailing season
Onne van der Wal and his family spent the winter restoring their 1972 Pearson 36, Snoek. And then came summer, and their reward: the first sail. The skies opened up for their first day with the new sails. Onne and his daughter, Read, teamed up with North Sails’ Bill Fortenberry to rig up and sail the boat, and together they captured the day through Onne’s lens. Following are some highlights with their remarks.
