Different types of sails and rigging on a boat
Sails are the engine of a boat, propelling it forward with the wind. There are several types of sails used for different wind conditions and directions, and it is important to know them to sail effectively.

Going green at sea
The decision starts when buying a boat. Sailboats have the lowest environmental impact because they are powered by the wind, so their carbon footprint in itself is smaller than other boats.
Marine species in Mallorca
In the Mediterranean there are more than 17,000 marine species living under the sea. This is not surprising considering that the Mediterranean is one of the most important seas in the world.
In the Mediterranean we find different winds depending on the time of the year and the best way to recognise the direction is through the wind rose or compass rose. Each point indicates the direction from which the wind is coming, unlike the compass, the cardinal points on the rose represent the geographical point and not the magnetic point.
Tips before buying a new boat
Before finalising your purchase, hire a company to carry out an inspection of the boat, including a sea trial, to ensure that everything is in perfect condition and that you will not have any problems when you go out to sea.
Zero carbon footprint at sea
If this plan is followed to the letter, the shipping industry could reduce its carbon footprint by 50% by 2025, 80% by 2030 and achieve zero emissions by 2035.
