Obviously sad news.... Sad 

Did anyone know this guy? Thought I'd post this as I know many of you started out as pole-dancers, back in the day.

A windsurfer who taught hundreds of people to do the sport has died in a windsurfing accident in Tenerife.

Vic Pinheiro, 64, from Swansea, drowned at the resort of El Medano on the Spanish island earlier this month.

He spent years teaching others the sport at Mumbles Yacht Club. Club commodore Chris Osborne called Mr Pinheiro's death a "tragic loss".

A funeral service has been held in Tenerife and a memorial will be held in Wales at a later date.

Tim Ley, a sailing captain at Mumbles, said: "He leaves a great legacy of many active windsurfers. He left us whilst participating in his passion."

The club's commodore, Chris Osborne, said of Mr Pinheiro: "He served as our chief instructor mentoring many hundreds of cadets and adults in the sports of sailing and windsurfing.

"His passing is extremely sad and a great loss."

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said they were aware of the death of a British national on 6 March in Tenerife.

She added: "We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."
