Re: Hi everybody from Italy!

Ciao, Fabio.

You can learn to sail on a 470. A bigger boat will help you learn to cruise. The Med is beautiful and full of possibility.

In bocca al lupo!

Welome Fabio

My wife is from Bassano del Grappa (VI)...

The 470 looks like a fun boat to sail and should work well along the Amalfi coast, well in the summer at least!

Re: Hi everybody from Italy!

thank you.
It's about 25 years i sail that sea, and little cruiser in ibiza/algeri/palermo and malta/palermo on a beauty 22mt ketch..yes, 470 is a very good and funny boat to learn, but i'll have to improve navigations rules, electronical devices in boat, weather and so on...
my 470 is in Erchie (Sa, It), and it bring me around Amalfi coast!
Who wants to come?!?
