Pinnington's all at sea

Sailing can be an arduous task if it doesn't involve sipping pina colada from the comfort of the deck, as Euro RSCG's chairman, Chris Pinnington, recently found out.

Agencies and clients quickly realised Pinnington was clearly more accustomed to the latter after he finished the recent ABC Cup sailing race a dismal last. The media lawyer Brinsley Dresden had a bit of a wobble when his foot got caught in a stray line and he was hauled up the mast and left dangling in mid-air. The race, in aid of the Helen & Douglas House children's hospice, was won by a team from Wrigley, with Interpublic and Firefish the runners-up.
