Jorrit van der Pal

I am Jorrit, 20 years old and I live in Bakhuizen. I am a student of maritime engineering (naval architecture) at the NHL in Leeuwarden. I am currently in my 3rd year of study and I am working at Wajer in Heeg where I first worked on the shop floor, and at the moment I am in engineering. From an early age I have always been sailing and I can often be found on the Frisian lakes. Last year I participated for the first time in the switching class for the Sneekweek together with my brother Steven. As a hobby besides sailing I like football very much. This will be my first year on a skûtsje and I am really looking forward to the IFKS to put in the best possible performance with a team.
