May 2022 with Borma

MAY 25,2022

How fast time passes!
Just a minute ago we were talking about the previous summer, with the saltiness we breathed on the beach of Lido di Savio and here we are again in the open sea to breathe the air of this (hopefully!) Hot summer 2022.
"I am sailing, I am sailing,
home again 'cross the sea.
I am sailing, stormy waters,
to be near you, to be free"

About the passing of the years!
This is what the great Rod Steward sang in 1975 but being affected by SAILING in 2022 puts the same chills as it did then, with the melancholy that takes those who have gone from rebellious tuft to white hair or bald head.
Sailing has always been man's dream, ever since he created the first prototype of a "boat" with a tree trunk dug and placed on the water of a river.
Because feeling the wind that caresses you on your skin or fighting against the unknown have always represented the two sides of the same coin: challenging your limits and feeling free.
And when, if not in summer, this desire for freedom takes us all and we all want to experience our courage and our strength.
Simply going offshore with a skate or a rowing boat or, new Soldini, setting the sails and facing the open sea. Because the history of evolution teaches us that we all come from the sea and the sea is our "primordial mother".
So here we leave the shore and we feel at home. A house without walls, without a roof, made only of light, wind and water.
In this house we like to get lost even when the route is certain and safe. Because we know that, whatever may happen to us, in any case "we will go back to where we came from".

So let's sail and enjoy this dazzling light, the clouds that constantly change shape unleashing our imagination, the taste of the sun and water, both sweet and calm like that of a lake and strong and agitated like that of the open sea.
However, everything must be as we want it, not left completely to chance.
It is our mind that, following its own fantasies, will be left free to wander in unusual spaces.
With our feet firmly on our boat.
And with the boat that will never be like the trunk of our ancestors.
A trunk that after a very short time began to deteriorate, and finally, rotting, sank, often with those inside.
We cannot afford this and we cannot afford it.
First, because our boat, large or small, was not a "gift of nature" but we sweated it with our work and in a nutshell, we PAID for it.
Second, because just as we are proud to drive a car that is always shiny, we certainly don't want to cross lakes and seas with a completely flaking and dilapidated vehicle.
And then, how can we feel "long-time captains" if we command a "bald tub"?
The solution is at your fingertips, or better, at your fingertips. Because it is enough to use the right products and our vessel will always be as good as new.

And now that our boat has been refurbished and shines in the summer sun, where can we go to envy those who sail near us?
As we know, the Earth is also called the "globe" because it is mostly covered with water.
Indeed, scientists are deeply concerned that, fortunately, according to studies still to be demonstrated, in the coming decades some of the current land masses could end up under water.

But we don't want to be pessimistic and, following the ancient principle of "carpe diem" we think about today and at where we can "bordesare" under the sun.
If ours is a simple small boat (like a Ligurian "gozzo") nothing better than the tip that goes from Portofino in San Fruttuoso. It is certainly one of the most beautiful coasts in the world, where the green of the promontory is reflected in the blue of a sea which, thanks to the Marine Protected Area, established in 1999 by the Italian Government, has also become a paradise for divers, with a wealth of fish that has few equals in the Mediterranean.
And then, skirting the cliff and passing in front of Portofino, maybe you will come across some VIPs who, from the height of its 120 ', it will also be able to greet you.
And, to finish this mini-cruise, you can stop at Punta Chiappa di Camogli, moor yours ship and go up to SPADIN where the sea has been in every dish since time immemorial.
