When I agreed to go sailing a couple of months ago, I obviously was not thinking straight. I’m not a good swimmer, I hate deep water and I get seasick! The closer the day got, the more apprehensive I became.
The day arrived, a glorious one at that, and my husband, John and I walked to the Real Club Naútico de Calpe. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, a good start. John and I were put on a TOM skippered by Dave, with experienced crew member José. Everything seemed so complicated – I wondered what I’d let myself in for!

This all quickly changed. Once out of the harbour the TOM effortlessly cut through the water. The scenery around us was spectacular, and watching the other TOMs was incredible.
