¿Quién no ha imaginado una vida idílica en la Toscana, saboreando un buen vino, disfrutando de la mejor comida y de la amistad vecinal? Ferenc y Candace Máté, escritor y pintora, parecen haberlo logrado. Pero el verdadero sueño de Ferenc es crear su propio vino. Juntos aprenderán que para conseguirlo se requiere perseverancia, buen gusto y, sobre todo, la capacidad de reírse de uno mismo. Después de una hilarante búsqueda por sinuosas carreteras, estos dos audaces neoyorquinos encuentran en Montalcino un antiguo monasterio rodeado de potenciales viñedos. Sin embargo, antes de cumplir su sueño deberán lidiar con los nativos toscanos, no siempre tan bien intencionados, la reforma de una casa de más de setecientos años llena de sorpresas y un tractor empeñado en no obedecer. Cuando los vinos de los Máté ven la luz, reciben enseguida la admiración internacional, y su Syrah es nombrado «Vino tinto italiano del año 2007». Junto a esta envidiable pareja y sus memorables colaboradores descubrirás los secretos de la elaboración de un buen vino, pero también de la buena vida, aquella que se disfruta con entusiasmo y mucho, mucho humor.

La Toscana se ha convertido en sinónimo de la vida ideal. Pero no ha sido por casualidad. Desde los etruscos, los toscanos han perfeccionado una cultura de la simplicidad, la belleza, la amistad, el buen comer y el amor a la vida cotidiana. Ferenc Máté ha vivido en la región durante más de veinte años. A través de su experiencia personal y divertidas anécdotas, explora el origen de esta existencia idílica, que le ha proporcionado estabilidad económica, seguridad física y emocional y un feliz sentimiento de pertenencia. Desde los huertos de productos orgánicos a la sabrosa cocina, desde los negocios familiares a las alegrías del contacto humano y la vida en comunidad, los toscanos llevan una vida saludable y satisfactoria en todos los sentidos, y Máté nos invita y enseña en estas páginas a vivir como ellos. En un mundo tan frenético y a la deriva como el actual, éste es sin duda un libro necesario.

Principles of Yacht Design has now established itself as the standard book on the subject for practising designers, naval architecture students, discerning boat owners and the boatbuilding industry as a whole. Now revised and expanded for the third edition it examines every aspect of the process of yacht and powerboat design. The authors have used a newly designed 40 foot performance cruiser to demonstrate the practical application of yacht design theory. Beginning with the yacht's specifications, the authors examine vital topics and conclude with practical matters such as the layout of the cockpit, deck and cabin, and provide a complete weight calculation for the boat. 'This book is deeply fascinating . . . a must.' Classic Boat 'A sound and up to date manual of yacht design . . . a classic in its field.' Practical Boat Owner 'A definitive work on yacht design.'

"Vive la Revolution!" was the theme of the Twenty-Third Symposium on Naval Hydrodynamics held in Val de Reuil, France, from September 17-22, 2000 as more than 140 experts in ship design, construction, and operation came together to exchange naval research developments. The forum encouraged both formal and informal discussion of presented papers, and the occasion provides an opportunity for direct communication between international peers. This book includes sixty-three papers presented at the symposium which was organized jointly by the Office of Naval Research, the National Research Council (Naval Studies Board), and the Bassin d'Essais des Carènes. This book includes the ten topical areas discussed at the symposium: wave-induced motions and loads, hydrodynamics in ship design, propulsor hydrodynamics and hydroacoustics, CFD validation, viscous ship hydrodynamics, cavitation and bubbly flow, wave hydrodynamics, wake dynamics, shallow water hydrodynamics, and fluid dynamics in the naval context.

Example in this ebook CHAPTER I. Around the Viking House-fire. In the Northland were the roots from which grew the great nations which now rule the earth. The tribes were many, but the principal representative and the absorbent of their thoughts and their traditions may receive from us the general name of Saxons. These were the swordsmen of the sea whom the Roman legionaries declared to be the hardest fighters they had met, whether on land or water. In the Northland were also the germs of political and religious liberty, and here were to be found the first forms of our highest faith. But the men of the old race sailed southward and then eastward, at the first, taking their gods with them. Not until centuries later did they march and conquer this far western world, but we, their children, still devoutly believe that the great God came with them. The landward slope of a vast gray granite headland was thickly covered with towering pine trees. Beyond them, inland, lay a snowy valley without woods, and beyond that arose a blue and misty range of mountains. There were no trees upon the summit of the headland; only bare rocks, storm worn and deeply furrowed, were uplifted to meet the bitter wind that swept down over the flinty ice covering of the North Sea from the yet colder winter which was manufacturing icebergs within the arctic circle. Sheer down, hundreds of feet, the perpendicular face of the cliff smote sharply the glittering level that stretched away westerly over the sea to the horizon, while an arm of it pushed in eastward over the fettered waters of a deep and gloomy fiord, rock-bordered. Here would evidently be a good harbor in summer, when the waters should be free, but now it had a forbidding, dangerous look, and out of the fiord poured continually a volume of roaring sound, the solemn organry of the wind playing upon the icy and rocky reflectors. There was another gigantic sea cliff at a distance of about a mile down the shore, southerly. Between that and the headland the ice line curved raggedly inward along the lines of a sheltered cove, which might at another season provide a landing place. Midway, and at the head of the cove, there lay, propped up on either side by timbers, the bare hull of a well-made vessel. It was of goodly size, being over thirty paces in length and of full six paces in width at its middle. At the prow and at the stern it was high built, with short decks, under which was room for stowage and for the sheltered sleeping of men. It was lower made amidships, where were both seats and standing room for rowers, and on either side were twenty thole pins. In appearance the hull was somewhat flat-bottomed, but it had a keel. At the center arose a stout, high mast, but upon it there was yet neither yard nor boom nor sail. Both prow and stern were sharply made. Evident was it that she was new and had never yet floated. Her outline was of much beauty, and all her timbers and planks were heavy and strong, that she might battle with rough seas and with the ice cakes of the spring breaking. From her prow projected a beak of firmly clamped and tenoned oak, faced and pointed with iron, that she might break not only the waves, but the ribs of other ships. All around her and in some parts over her lay the white snow, deeply drifted, but wherever the woodwork was uncovered there could be seen much of skillful carving and smooth polishing.

The pleasures and adventures of cruising under sail are amazingly affordable, say Lin and Larry Pardey. But to keep your dream on budget, you have to decide: Are you a cruiser or a consumer? In this book, a logical successor to their Self-Sufficient Sailor and Capable Cruiser, they discuss making your getaway plans, finding a truly affordable boat, keeping your outfitting costs and maintenance time under control, and learning to feel confident as you cruise farther afield. Their comparison of the gear considered necessary by many yachting experts and the gear carried by several cost-conscious cruisers will help you guage wheter you are buying the true necessities or overloading your boat with high-tech items that can break down and steal your sense of confidence offshore. The chapters on getting the most from your cruising funds, the attributes of successful long-term voyagers, how to upgrade your boat with your own hands, plus answers to the then questions most frequently asked by potential cruisers will help you prepare to explore under sail. as Lin and Larry explain, "The decisions you make now will determine if yu'll come back from your cruise feeling more empowered or more enslaved by today's consumer society."

On Friday 14 June 1968 Suhaili, a tiny ketch, slipped almost unnoticed out of Falmouth harbour steered by the solitary figure at her helm, Robin Knox-Johnston. Ten and a half months later Suhaili, paintwork peeling and rust streaked, her once white sails weathered and brown, her self-steering gone, her tiller arm jury rigged to the rudder head, came romping joyously back to Falmouth to a fantastic reception for Robin, who had become the first man to sail round the world non-stop single-handed. By every standard it was an incredible adventure, perhaps the last great uncomputerised journey left to man. Every hazard, every temptation to abandon the astounding voyage came Robin's way, from polluted water tanks, smashed cabin top and collapsed boom to lost self-steering gear and sheered off tiller, and all before the tiny ketch had fought her way to Cape Horn, the point of no return, the fearsome test of any seaman's nerve and determination. A World of My Own is Robin's gripping, uninhibited, moving account of one of the greatest sea adventures of our time. An instant bestseller, it is now reissued for a new generation of readers to be enthralled and inspired.
