Sail360 David TownsendI can still remember the very first day that I went sailing; I was 12 years of age, before that time I had no previous sailing experiences. Even before then though I loved being by the sea, the sound of the waves breaking upon the shore, the peace and tranquillity, which this brought to me.

The first time I went sailing however did not go as planned for within several seconds the dinghy had done a complete circle, I was back where I started. Several hours later and more gybes than I can recall I was sailing like an old hand, well, sort of.
