ABOUT ME: My name is Melinda Henshaw and I grew up in the South Island of New Zealand. I learnt to sail in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds and went on to sail for New Zealand at the Sydney Olympics. I currently teach sailing at the Buckland's Beach Yacht Club and for Sailability in Auckland. Im passionate about getting all ages into sailing - in particular building self reliance, courage and resilience. Sailing is a fantastic way to learn how to enjoy and relax in the great outdoors. It may take you places you have never been and see sights you wouldn't have otherwise seen! See you out there!
ABOUT TIWAL: The TIWAL is designed by Marion Excoffon, a French industrial designer, who was inspired to make her own boat when she wasn't allowed to take the family boat out by herself! Marion and her husband, Emmanuel, and their daughter live in a beautiful part of Brittany, France, where they organise the TIWAL Cup each year.
