Luigi, the kind of guy who loves to sail and loves to share his hobby. Or should I say hobbies? Because we’ve been sharing not only about sailing but also about food (he is a very good cook), about mechanics and electronics (he is a good engineer) and about chess (he tries to be a good player 😉 ).
On his boat I’ve got my first experience of being a part of a crew, he taught me how to rise a sail, how to steer the boat, some sailing vocabulary (in Italian, but anyways… ), how to enjoy a good meal onboard, and I’m sure I’m forgetting some things. I also want to say that it’s good to teach something to people but there is also the way to do it. Luigi is a teacher, a patient and passionate one. This is very much appreciable when, like me, you start from nothing. He is also a open minded and pleasant to speak with person. We had quite a few laugh onboard and the atmosphere was mostly relaxed. I did enjoy his sens of humor, and I hope he enjoyed mine 🙂
To finish I would say that even if you’re a very beginner, if you’re interested in sailing and ready to learn, just take your chance with Luigi!
