image with coverWhy get on board with us for the October issue of the Sailing Journal? For many good reasons. Read on, we already reveal ten of them for you to preview, starting with our guide to the 101 must-do boats in 2016, and moving on to the great feature on regattas to do at least once in your life to consider yourself a true sailor. This and much, much more…

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_0631. THE LIST OF 101 BOATS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2016
Ready to flip through the 32 special pages, all devoted entirely to the 101 boats we’ve selected from the very latest that have taken to the water and those you can look forward to in the coming months? From dinghies to megayachts, via the many multihulls and “blue water” cruisers that wink at long sailing. What is your favorite novelty?

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_0972. THE RECIPE FOR BECOMING A TRUE SAILOR
In no other sport but sailing can you participate in a “cult” event where you are in contact with the biggest names, along mythical routes and places. Then, once in your life, decide to become a real sailor. To be able to tell that you, too, with your own boat, with a rented one or with a simple boarding, have entered the history of sailing. We propose 21 regattas that will make you a little hero of the sea forever.

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_0273. I LEARNED TO NAVIGATE FROM LAND
Fabrizio Formicola invented the world’s first real simulator of a sailboat. Let’s find out who this ingenious Milanese man is who wants to teach you how to ride a boat, without getting your feet wet. Every maneuver aboard Checkers, the model boat made to the smallest detail, is transmitted from the cockpit to the control platform ashore.

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_1074. FREE!!!
“Free!” So shouted Sergio Testa as he set off on a solo round-the-world voyage in a 10-foot boat. That was 30 years ago. And 30 years later, we tell you about the Italian-Australian’s adventure, enhanced by drawings, photos and pages from the navigator’s logbook. At the end of the service we offer an “anthology” of feats accomplished by great sailors on small boats.

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_1245. WHAT’S UNDERNEATH?
Racing and cruising boats in recent years have improved in aesthetics, volume, and performance. At the origin of this change is a revolution in hull shapes. Telling you what happened is Claudio Maletto, one of Italy’s most prolific and longtime top designers.

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_1296. SWAN S&S, HOW A SAILING MYTH IS BORN
The collaboration between the New York firm of Sparkman&Stephens and the Finnish shipyard Nautor marked a golden age of world sailing. Fifteen models designed and 813 hulls launched that represent a myth for all enthusiasts. We tell you how this great love story divided by an ocean came about.

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_1267. THE NEW STAR OF ITALIAN SAILING
Laserist Francesco Marrai stunned everyone by winning the pre-Olympic test event in Rio de Janeiro, putting him behind such holy monsters as Robert Scheidt (who, by the way, is his undisputed idol). We interviewed him hot to probe his ambitions ahead of 2016. “What medal do I want?” he confessed to us, “The more golden, the better.”

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_1328. THE TEST OF THE MONTH – DUFOUR 460 GL
Was the last piece missing from Dufour’s Grand Large range? There you have it: a 46-footer with all the conveniences of its larger 50′ siblings. For smooth sailing even in 30 knots of air. Umberto Felci’s pencil makes itself felt here as well, with angular lines on a sleek hull. We tested it for you…

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_1399. A LONG SUMMER COLORED BLUE
In recent months our sailors have given us so many satisfactions: we have decided to present to you, crew by crew, class by class, the young athletes who, to the sound of medals, are building the present and the future of Italian sailing. Rio 2016 could indeed hold many surprises…

SAIL OCTOBER_PAGE_14710. WITH HEAVY SEAS, STICK TO IT!
If you are planning to sail at night or go out in rough seas, don’t forget to arm lifelines the right way, they can save your life! In two other pages, however, we tell you about a little-covered but critically important topic: floating anchors. Do you know how to use them correctly?

Remember, there are also many other good reasons not to miss the new October issue of the Sailing Journal. On newsstands, on iPad, iPhone and all Android tablets and smartphones.
