Sunsail In 1974, when the world was in the depths of a recession, the Watergate Scandal forced Nixon to resign, and the Velour Jumpsuit (the original Onesie) was in fashion, a small sailing school embarked on their first Flotilla Holiday. Forty years later, the school, known as Sunsail, is still offering Flotillas and a whole host of other ways to sail from 27 exciting and exotic locations around the world.
