This article is dedicate to all those who have long dreamed of starting to sail with their own boat but have not yet had the courage or the opportunity. Do you think your sailboat, born for the cruise, is not suitable? Don’t know where to start?
Sometimes great ideas run aground on a grain of sand and we will try to wipe it out by interviewing Giuseppe Tesorone: lifelong sailor, racer, regatta officer and owner of Sail in Progress. We will try to eliminate any doubt and if it is not enough we invite you to ask your question to Giuseppe, leaving a comment.
Giuseppe Tesorone is passionate about sailing, racer, regatta officer and owner of Sail in Progress , a company that deals with sailing at 360 °, with particular attention to competitive sailing. Thanks to the many prestigious results, he won the “Shipowner’s Trophy of the Year” for three consecutive years and was nominated for the “Golden Rudder”. Giuseppe Tesorone is also one of the teachers of the BMW Match Race Academy.
“Because it’s nice to feel emotions in life! Regattas allow you to experience the thrill of competition , to test yourself.
Furthermore, normally a boat is used above all in the spring-summer period; making regattas is a great opportunity to use it and go to sea all year round .
Finally, the regattas allow to acquire a mastery of the medium that is not learned during the summer cruises and that can be useful in every situation, even outside the competitions. “
What do you think looks the best?
Everyone will try to capture the most beautiful aspect, depending on their personality. What I like best is the competition, the energy, the enthusiasm that a regatta gives to all the crew “.
Can you start racing with any boat?
“I would say yes! The important thing is to understand what the conditions are, what features the boat has and find the right racing circuit. For example, if I have a cruise boat and I compete against only racing boats, I certainly won’t enjoy it. On the contrary between boats of the same “type” the competition is stimulating and fun at any level.
