Sailing is a sport which demands racing with the wind and crashing with the waves. Ravi Mariwala shares an enthusiastic record of his tryst with sailboats since childhood. He reveals how anchoring a boat gratifies him more than a landing aeroplane or a halting car. Right from making Big brothers in the process, getting capsized and rescued, quality time to his cadet days, this is a learning which he believes should pass on from generation to generation.
The fractal nature of this adventure which changes pattern from simple sails to complex maneuvers is bound to give the much needed muscle itch and hormone gush.

Dr. Ravi Mariwala is the Managing Director of Scientific Precision Pvt.Ltd, a company that provides integrated and holistic water solutions for water and food industries and the Director of Eternis Fine Chemicals, one of the biggest companies of the fragrances business. He is also an adjunct professor of Chemical Engineering at ICT, Mumbai. He is the alumnus of the University of Delaware and Wisconsin-Madison and St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai. For him, yachting is a passion which he enthusiastically pursues. Sailing across the clear waters of Mumbai, he brings to forefront a sport that is rapidly gaining prominence in the city.
