Refinish a table

What is the best type of sander for removing yellowed varnish on what I think is a pine table?? 

I have used a belt sander with a 60 grit paper but it is not having much effect.

It worked ok on the edge (it is a round table).

The surface is in good nick I just want to get it back to the raw timber and then finish with a clear varnish.
