Sailing History – Why you can’t miss this opportunity

Understand? A unique opportunity to spend a summer immersed in the history of sailing! We have selected the best of what we have published in our history, hundreds of news reports from the 521 issues published so far. We scanned them to make them digital, retrieving them from the precious bound books that contain all the vintages.

An example of a browsable article found on our digital Vela History archive

To each article (in browsable PDF format) we have added the cover of the issue in which it came out, accompanied by a new title and a brief summary, so that the topic and why it was chosen are immediately clear.

To top it off, we created a platform, viewable from all devices (computers, tablets, smartphones) where, as in Netflix, one click is all it takes to access viewing.
