What you can find in the new issue of the Sailing Newspaper

A dense issue in its 132 pages all to be discovered.


UNDER 10 METERS: NATANTONE OR DAYSAILER?

Easy to manage and lead, no bureaucracy, comfortable, spacious as an old-fashioned 12-meter boat. It is the vessels that-only by us-do not have to be registered. You’d better take advantage of this all-Italian “anomaly” and discover the right 20 models under 10 meters to go on vacation, go racing or enjoy a weekend of pure sailing.


SWALLOW, STORY OF THE BOAT THAT DIDN’T WANT TO DIE

In this report, we tell you the incredible story of the barge that just won’t die. No one would have bet on this seven-footer, launched in 1965 on a 1942 design. Yet he became a sailing legend. The Rondetto was the first boat with which an Italian sailor crossed the Atlantic in ’69. In its history it has made five crossings (including an Ostar), was beached in Brazil in ’86, sank in the Rapallo swell in 2018, and has returned to new life thanks to the passion of its latest owner…


THE VALUE OF THE SIGNATURE

How do you design a cult sailboat today? In this report, Umberto Felci reveals the secrets of his studio, which, against the odds, thinks and births every boat from start to finish inside. Just like the great archistars.


BOAT PANTS, LONG OR SHORT?

In this “review” we have scouted for you the most versatile boat pants styles you wear on board and at the dock. Here are what are the “must-haves” in the run-up to summer…


OUT OF THE CHORUS!

Skipper Alex Mazzetti, tired of conventional cruises, visited unusual destinations by boat with his “Sailing Explorations.” That is, week-long adventures in unconventional “spots” but reachable by low-cost flights, away from mass tourism, using the boat as a camper. He has chosen for you eight places out of the chorus.


CHECKLIST: 30 ESSENTIAL CHECKS BEFORE YOU SET SAIL

From engine oil to a safety certificate, we asked liveaboard Fabio Portesan to reveal what are the must-do checks on your boat before heading out on the water for the summer season–and we also reveal how much they cost!


THE FABULOUS WORLD OF 50 FEET

We tell you in detail about the world of 50-footers through the latest market news. Starting with the Hallberg-Rassy 50 through the new Arcona 50. Finally, we have chosen eight bluewater for you. Boats that are as comfortable as home but safe and seaworthy to cope with long periods of life at sea: we tell you what you can find on the market if you are looking for a bluewater from 48 to 56 feet.


MICA IS NOT OVER…

Miça is over, there are plenty of reasons to get on board the April issue of the Sailing Newspaper. We tell you about the new Grand Soleil 40 and the RS Toura, the drift for all. You will find out who were the big players in the Winter Sailing Championships around the peninsula and their boats.

We will take you behind the scenes of a “virtuous circle” where people learn well to sail and tell you the stories of the finalists of the TAG Heuer Sailor of the Year, the most prestigious award in Italian sailing. Plus boats, sea stories, accessories, tips for your sailing and how to improve your boat. What are you waiting for? Run to the newsstand!
