Never before has the bargain boat market been so rich in opportunities for both buyers and sellers. But you have to be careful not to get ripped off. Starting with the pitfalls of the Internet. Here is a guide to identifying the used boat that is almost better than a new one and how to properly evaluate it. We followed up with a surveyor to figure out what to check to avoid risking the “only”…

Never before has the Velista dell’Anno, the most prestigious award in Italian sailing (awarded by the Giornale della Vela since 1991) been followed by the public as this year: more than 40,000 online votes in the three phases of voting, comments, and emails. In this extensive feature we tell you the stories of all the winners, starting with Giancarlo Pedote, 2016 Sailor of the Year…

We continue our journey to find hidden Greece, where charter fleets do not arrive even in the middle of August. The expert sailor (who always wants to remain anonymous) who in the last issue took us among the secret bays of the Septentrion Sporades, in these pages takes us along the “toes” of the Chalkidiki peninsula. Among white beaches, unspoiled nature and the charm of the monasteries of Mount Athos, you can feel like a true explorer…

Nowadays on a boat, with just a few moves, you can have the Internet available for you and the entire crew, while also viewing all the data from on-board instruments on your mobile devices (and even controlling them remotely). The expert explains how to create an efficient on-board wifi network while avoiding the most common mistakes…

Those who dared to call the TAG Heuer VELA Cup the “little” Barcolana of the Tyrrhenian Sea, in spirit and characteristics, were not entirely wrong. This year, with 206 boats registered and more than 1,500 sailors at the start, it earned the title of the most crowded sailing event in the Tyrrhenian Sea. And to think that in the first edition two years ago, “only” 114 showed up. We tell you how it went (and why it was so successful), and reveal all the winners…

Butterfly sailing using the tangon jib is making a big comeback: in these pages we explain why in cruising it is a comfortable, high-performance gait, suitable if you don’t have an experienced crew and are planning long sailings at the grand luff…

We met them at the VELAFestival and fell in love with their story: it is not true that you can only sail around the world if you are rich. This is demonstrated by the story of Timothy, Miriam and their two daughters. An exciting 20-year journey from the Mediterranean Sea to the Fiji Islands…

This month we tell you about two boats that will provide you with a quiet cruise, but with a different style. We were aboard Beneteau’s new Oceanis 41.1, with designer Conq revealing its secrets, and tested for you the Bali 4.0, the smallest of Catana’s cruising range models, which keeps the shipyard’s sporty DNA intact…
