The Yacht
 

Grand Soleil 40

urante una crociera di due settimane sul Grand Soleil 40, Cantieri del Pardo, si provano frequentemente due forti impulsi: quello di abbracciare il designer che ha creato una barca così piacevole e veloce, e nello stesso tempo quello di prendere a calci un responsabile di progetto che l’ha infarcita di difettucci, sufficienti a tenere lontani dall’acquisto i marinai esperti che la provano. Dio e il Diavolo sono, si sa, nei dettagli!Ottimo disegno, una buona attrezzatura e un moderno piano velico di grande superficie spingono il GS 50 veloce sull’acqua e nelle classifiche delle regate. Certo non vorremmo navigare contro onde fastidiosamente alte, diciamo oltre il mezzo metro, dal momento che la velocità raggiunta con il disegno e il peso ha un prezzo notevole nel momento in cui si affronta l’onda.

The crew (this vessel is listed in the Intelligent Charters sections, and a different crew can be chosen)

Oscar: born and raised in a Navy environment, he accompanied his father in the Naval Academy and learned to sail with a guy named Agostino Straulino (Star Class Olympic Gold Medal). Then sailed in many seas, warm and cold, as a bosun on the Italian Navy sailboat, Stella Polaris. Not easily chained by strict discipline, he soon cast off for himself, seeding a wide network of relationships in most Mediterranean countries. He knows nearly every harbour, wine, tavern and bay between Trieste and Trieste via Istambul and Gibraltar

Mauro: Born and raised in Trieste, on that Adriatic coast he knows so well and loves so much, Mauro 'Capitan Findus' graduated at the Nautical College. he soon started a life at sea on mineswepers first and on ships of the line afterwards.
He then bought his own vessel and started cruising extensively along the Dalmatian coast.
He sails to enjoy the pure beauty of the sea:
Brilliant attitude and chef 'extraordinaire', he keeps searching the hidden corners of the coast, looking for new places, new people, new wines and new taste
