Reading recommendation - Sailosophy

SailosophyIt is our pleasure to present to you a sailing blog on English and Croatian started by our associate and soon to be instructor Tomislav Bradić - Sailosophy.com. When Tomislav appeared in ANA last year we weren’t quite sure what was his story. But, after a year of successful and close cooperation, we are more than sure that he has some very good stories to tell. As he himself says, we in ANA accepted him as one of our own, so it isn't surprising that the majority of experts in blog's expert team, are ANA's instructors. Why he started sailing and why he came to ANA at all you can read in his first post – I sail, therefore I am. Find out how he 'survived' our skipper course, and read what kind of the Japanese connection he found in ANA.
