This fourth Nautic News brings you four new varied, entertaining and useful recommendations for lovers of the sea and nautical activities.

Pelle technical trousers

Swedish brand specialising in nautical clothing Pelle offers its Defender III Salopette, a pair of high-performance bib and brace trousers. It is made of a breathable, high-strength membrane in a four-layer sandwich. It incorporates reinforcements to prevent chafing, six adjustment points and hook and loop tape fasteners at the ankles for a snug fit. It features leg pockets and a waterproof front zip. It is available in six unisex sizes.

A Voyage For Madmen, a must-see historical thriller

Written by Peter Nichols and published in the legendary collection of yellow books Viajes y expediciones by Editorial Juventud, the book tells all the ins and outs of the first edition of the Golden Globe Race. It delves into the nine protagonists, their boats and the intrigues of that first solo, non-stop, round-the-world race.

Great little multipurpose gadget

The American brand Davis, which specialises in the sale of accessories for recreational boating and boating activities, includes in its extensive catalogue the small multipurpose tool Snap Tool Multi-Key. Tightening a shackle, securing a bolt or loosening a nut are common tasks on a ship. So are opening a bottle, cutting a fishing line, opening a zip stuck by saltpetre or rust, peeling off an awning’s closing clip or opening a fuel filler cap.

Safeguarding maritime culture

An essential visit for lovers of the sea and those curious about history, Maritime Museum of Barcelona offers a variety of exhibitions, some permanent and others temporary, that delve into ships and the seafaring world, both from original pieces, photographic exhibitions and other activities. It is located in the reconstructed Drassanes building, near the statue of Columbus and close to the Moll de la Fusta. It is open daily from 10 am to 8 pm, and on Sundays from 3 pm admission is free.
