Renowned and award winning nautical photographer, Onne van der Wal (pronounced "Onn-A") has been shooting yachting photography for over 25 years. Once a professional sailor, Onne got his start in photography while sailing as bowman and engineer with the 1981-82 Dutch Whitbread Around the World Race Team on the winning boat, FLYER . When Onne returned from their circumnavigation, the press was eager to publish the many photos he had shot and he hasn't stopped shooting since.
The National Sailing Hall of Fame is pleased to offer this addition to our online Gallery Exhibition of American Sailing Photographers.
You can view the exhibit at our website, www.nshof.org.
