Screenshot 2015-04-28 at 2:57:42 p.m.Giovanni Porzio is one of Italy’s best reporters and a passionate sailor. After many reports made in the pages of the Sailing Newspaper, we collected his reports at sea into a book. In “The Sea is Never the Same,” John takes us on a tour of discovery of the contradictions of Italy’s southern coasts, then pointing to Sardinia and Tunisia, but also making us dream along the fjords of the Great North, between the Svalbard Islands and the Orkney Archipelago.

“When I cast off the moorings the detachment is sharp, absolute. The terrestrial world is immediately distant, irrelevant in the face of the urgency of the winds, the movement of the waves, the charting of the course. Every crossing is a challenge and every landing is a discovery. The sea, like the desert, is never the same,” writes John Porzio in his preface. You can find “The Sea is Never the Same” enclosed with this issue of the Journal of Sailing for only €12.40 more, or at, bookstore section and at, bookstore section, for €18 including shipping directly to your door. If you prefer, a digital version is available for 7.99 euros. Do you want to know more? Giovanni Porzio will present his book and the background of his sailing at an event at the TAG Heuer VELAFestival (Santa Margherita Ligure, May 7-10) on Sunday, May 10, at 12 noon.
