Cruises with Gitana 7: a way of being
The skipper of Gitana develop a program of cruises each year. These cruises are unique and often go against the current development of present pleasure. The rationalization of the sail boating tourism standardized and parked in crowded marinas grows increasingly some skippers looking for authenticity and freedom to return to a simple, natural and exotic navigation.
These past 15 years have seen an exponential expanding of water sports and activities related to the standardized production of serial boats, generalization of GPS and navigation aids.
If some developments are extremely useful and comfortable, it also led the trivialization and feel that cruise shipping is affordable without prior learning and experiences.
This is what leads to the overpopulation of marinas: sailboats crisscrossing from port to port almost allways by engine, between 9 am and 5 pm and go quickly before they are overbooked.
Sailboats stop less and less in bays or isolated places for a few days, they are increasingly reliant on electricity in a"luxury caravan" comfort, like at home.
Conversely, the nautical quality and safety of their facilities is becoming more questionable: the serial boats are no longer made to navigate by force 7 without the risk of a rapidly equipment deteriorating . But as these navigations are for less than one percent of navigators, economic choices are quickly identified.
We do not want to oppose this movement, we would simply offer, for those who want a different approach to navigation, a return to a more real contact with the marine world, a way in which we adapt rather than oppose by trying to impose our terrestrial habits on a radically different environment.
