COMMUNITY BOATING CENTER RAISES OVER $7000 AT WINTER EVENT
THANK YOU FOR SHARING A SPECIAL JOURNEY TO THE STUNNING, DESOLATE EDGE OF ANTARCTICA WITH ONNE VAN DER WAL AN EXPEDITION TO SOUTH GEORGIA ISLAND
Renowned yachting and adventure photographer, Onne van der Wal, recently presented a slide show exploring the images taken during his five week expedition to the island of South Georgia off Antarctica.
Onne and the crew of the 88' sloop Shaman retraced the steps of the famed pole explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton. Experiencing the beauty of Antarctic wildlife, Onne captured amazing images of the islands populations of Wandering Albatross, King Penguin, Chin Strap Penguins, as well as monstrous Sea Lion and Reindeer.
This special presentation benefiting Community Boating Centers youth sailing programs was hosted by Paul Cuffee School, a maritime charter school for Providence children.
Thank you for sharing the adventure and supporting Community Boating Plus a portion of proceeds will be dedicated toward sailing scholarships for Paul Cuffee School students.
