What do you need to know to get on a boat and start sailing?
A book for those new to sailing. A useful tool for all those (and there are many) who are thinking about whether to sign up for a course, accompany a friend, or get an idea of what it takes to sail. Because to be true sailors, to be able to deal with any sea conditions, it is always necessary to learn the fundamentals of sailing.
That is why Davide Besana, a well-known and beloved illustrator, but also a multi-titled sailor and excellent sailor with many miles behind him, this time tries his hand at conveying, with the support of his drawings, the basics for every aspiring sailor. One hundred pages to read when deciding whether to cast off the moorings, but also before and after every boat outing, which will help the neophyte, but also the sailor-experienced-but-not-so-experienced, to become more familiar with a craft that – let’s face it – dreams, scares, and continues to fascinate.
Davide Besana, yachtsman, illustrator, and publicist, became famous with his sailing comics. He has written many books, published in every sailing magazine, and also in several newspapers generalists. He has sailed and raced with the greats of sailing, from Sicoury to Peyron, from Paul Cayard to Mauro Pelaschier. For Nutrimenti he has published, 'Tontopedia navalis' (2015), together with Lele Panzeri, '52 idiocies not to do on a boat' (2016), 'Sailing, instructions for use' (2020).
