To those new to the TIWAL website, my name is Melinda and I am the importer of this great little sailing dinghy from France. There is a boat at Kohi which is available anytime for Demos and I am a sailing instructor so I am happy to give you a few tips along the way. Lately I have been teaching in the TIWAL to a couple of ladies living on Kohi Beach who are challenging themselves with learning to sail at a much later age than they ever thought possible... we are pushing the boundaries out and we are having a lot of fun along the way! Next challenge.. to Rangitoto and back?!
Please come and ask for a sail or contact me if you would like to get out on the water for a sail on the TIWAL.
I am a New Zealand sailor who learned to sail in the beautiful Malborough Sounds and then went onto represent NZ at the 2000 Olympics.
