Get to know

In the first “Getting toKnow” section, here is the complete collection of our “Boat Interviews,” in which we go through point by point everything you need to know, from the masthead, down to the propeller, to make the best use of your boat and its equipment.


In the “Sailing” section, on the other hand, we guide you once you have put out to sea to learn how to maneuver with a small crew, at night or in rough seas. Not forgetting how to anchor smoothly or prepare the boat for winter and then testing yourself with a quiz to see if you are a good skipper.

LearnFinally, in the “Learning” section, here are no less than 61 questions and practical tips to test you. You can read the answer right away or attempt to answer it and then check your level of preparation. Here topics are divided into four categories, from the use of accessories and equipment to useful tips on weather and maintenance, from sailing maneuvers to never having trouble in port.

CopaIn short, a volume, this special one, designed to keep on hand, at home and on the boat, to take away doubts or brush up on your knowledge at any time.
