The “showdown” has begun: defender Team New Zealand is the first to sail with the new AC 75, Luna Rossa amazes everyone with a boat in the utmost pursuit of aerodynamics, and Alinghi, like its sponsor RedBull, “puts on wings.” The new hulls have evolved from the previous generation and are expected to perform 3% better than last Cup.

THE INVENTOR – Gianni Cariboni

As a child he took tourists out as a paddler as long as he was on a boat. Today he is considered the world’s foremost expert on hydraulics and hydraulics applied to sailing. There is no America’s Cup or super custom boat that does not mount a Cariboni system. He invented the canting keel, devised cylinders that are works of art, thought up cutting-edge rigging when he was dealing with masts. At 75, Gianni Cariboni has not stopped looking ahead, searching for the next innovation. The winner of the Sailor of the Year “Epic” award speaks.

A SUMMER IN A BOAT – With my own boat or by charter? Where to go – what to avoid – where to eat – what to see

A SUMMER ON A BOAT - With my own boat or by charter? Where to go - what to avoid - where to eat - what to see
A SUMMER IN A BOAT – With my own boat or by charter? Where to go – what to avoid – where to eat – what to see

Do you know what one of the few best things about a sailing vacation is?
Dreaming of and planning a boating vacation as the days begin to lengthen and summer begins to seem closer
But proceeding slowly, I have tried to put down a psychological profile of the sailor-nautical cruiser, between phenomenology and psychological profiling, dividing the types into four groups. I will tell you right away that the truly favored group is number two….
The categories identify those who this year:
1. They will go on a cruise in their own boat.
2. They will go on a cruise in other people’s boat.
3. If they rent it out.
4. They think about it every year but then end up in the vacation village with the family or, even worse, on cruise ships.

It’s already time to enjoy your free time on your sailboat, perhaps enjoying a nice aperitif at the dock take advantage of the early warm weather for a sail out or a chat in the harbor.


Special Ports – In search of the perfect port

Special Ports - In search of the perfect port
Special Ports – In search of the perfect port

With a total of more than 112 thousand berths, Italy is confirmed as a top destination for European and world nautical tourism. But if we move from quantity to the quality of the offer of “hospitality” on the sea, we find that there are only 88 tourist marinas equipped exclusively for recreation. The challenge is to increase and improve more and more ports to generate economic growth for the whole industry.


MYTHIC BOATS.

Moretto – Gardini’s pocket-sized Moor of Venice

Moretto – Gardini’s pocket-sized Moor of Venice

You don’t need to have spent years at Bertone’s, Pininfarina’s or Giugiaro’s to understand that designing a “fuoriserie” or a big, big car assures you of many chances of success, but on the contrary, when you find yourself sketching a small project, then things become difficult, impervious! Easy in some ways to draw a nice MaxiBoat of 20 and more meters, much much more difficult to draw a “little boat” of 8-9 meters, to say… But if you are a naval genius like German Frers the thing is not only not impossible but achievable, in fact, it is achievable and it is called The Moretto!

Brava – I’m back!

Brava - I'm back!

It is the entry-level of Jeanneau’s cruising range, a vessel with surprising interior volumes. The walkarounds are “walkaround,” without steps, and it has a backstay-less limb. Good performance, even in breezes. Our test.
