Cruising tips, quizzes, characters: it’s SAIL July!

July coverWhy get on board with us for the July issue of the Sailing Journal? For many good reasons. Read on, we already reveal ten of them for you to preview: starting with the beautiful story of Alain Gerbault, the man who inspired Moitessier, and moving on to the “quiz” that will let you figure out if you would be able to pass the boating license exam today. But that’s not all: there will also be the feature where you learn how to call for rescue at sea without making a mistake and the special explaining everything you ever wanted to know about insurance. This and much, much more.

babies1. CHILDREN, PREPARE TO SET SAIL
Life aboard a sailboat is possible, without special sacrifice, even if you have young children. To leave with them, simply choose and equip your boat well, organize your galley and luggage as best you can, and build an itinerary suitable for the little ones. In this report we explain how to do it starting with Andrea Cestari’s beautiful book “Children on Board.”

ac-622. AC62 ARRIVES, CONTROVERSY IMMEDIATELY
The America’s Cup Protocol drafted by Oracle and Team Australia is causing discussion because of the advantages given to the Defender. But amidst the controversy and early amendments, there is one certainty: the 35th America’s Cup will be raced aboard the AC62s, new catamarans equipped with foils and a rigid wing that, while costing less than the predecessor AC72, will be built to provide adrenaline and spectacle. We tell you what they will look like and what changes from the AC72.

in-cruise3.ON THE CRUISE I’M FINE IF I DO THIS
It’s finally time to set sail for the much-needed summer cruise: we asked Carlo Rimini, an experienced cruiser, to reveal his tips(from magical places to absolutely visit to crew management, night sailing and on-board cuisine) for an unforgettable boating experience.

license4. PROOF. WOULD YOU PASS THE DRIVER’S LICENSE TEST?
At last the boating license theory exam has changed, now it will be in the form of multiple choice quizzes. And we issue a challenge to you: why don’t you test yourself with our seventy questions? So you can check if you are still able to get your license (sure you don’t need a good review) or prepare for the exam if you don’t have it yet.

gerbault5. THE SAILOR WHO INSPIRED MOITESSIER
A fighter pilot during World War I, an adventurer and staunch opponent of colonialism made up of violence and injustice, Alain Gerbault was the first European to circumnavigate the globe solo, then take refuge in Polynesia. An ante-litteram Moitessier (from whom, in fact, the great Bernard was inspired) we tell you about in Alessandro De Angelis’ fine report.

vismara6. VISMARA STYLE.
One of the most prestigious names in Italian boating is turning 30. We went to the shipyard in Viareggio to see what’s new, flip through the album of the most successful boats and to understand the secrets of a company that has been perennially on the crest of the wave for three decades. Among the boats “simmering in the pot,” we tell you about the new 62-foot SuperNikka, which will participate in the Fastnet, and the Vismara V48 “Basic for ever,” which aims to revolutionize the motorsailer concept.

croatia7. THE BEST OF NORTHERN CROATIA
Noted “gastronautic” journalist Davide Deponti takes us to the rugged coastline of the Istrian peninsula, a mix of Central European but also Italian peoples and cultures, and the beautiful beaches of Kvarner. Places where you can discover both ancient and contemporary Croatia. A “best of” style condensation of Ports & Marinas, bays, landings, restaurants and historic sites to visit.

boats8. OUR EVIDENCE
We tested for you the new Beneteau Oceanis 38, characterized by the modularity of the interior, with which the French shipyard, proving to be a pioneer in the production of boats for large scale, has displaced the market and another “revolutionary” boat: it is the Dufour 310 GL, which is a vessel only on paper but has transformable interior solutions by maximizing space.

151-mile9. A RECORD-BREAKING 151 MILES
Now in its fifth year, the long regatta between Tuscany and Corsica is booming. This is confirmed by the numbers, with as many as 135 boats at the start. Explaining the reasons for this success are the shipowners themselves: we interviewed the protagonists of the regatta, all of whom agree on the beauty of the 151 Miglia but also add other useful factors to understand its growing appeal.

350-baie10. THE 350 BEST BAYS WHERE TO ANCHOR IN ITALY
As an optional attachment to the July issue of the Giornale dell Vela you can find our guide on the
“350 Best Bays Where to Anchor in Italy”
, all geolocated. The volume includes shelters, cards, places to visit ashore, and restaurants.

Remember, there are also many other good reasons not to miss the new July issue of the Sailing Journal. Newsstand,
