Mediterranean winds

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.

Sailing ships on scientific missions

In the near future, sailboats will be used for scientific missions instead of large vessels.

Today, a well-designed and certified sailing vessel, operated by a team of trained scientists, could carry out multidisciplinary hydro-oceanographic campaigns.

Sailing in bad weather

Sailing a yacht in bad weather is a situation that all sailors are likely to encounter. Wind, rain or rough seas can play a trick on us, so being prepared, knowing how to act and keeping calm will help to minimise any danger.

Cleaning and maintenance of ropes

There is no good sailor who is not aware of the importance of maintaining all the boat’s equipment, both to extend its useful life and for his own safety, and the care of the ropes could not be less important.
