Sergio Davì, ocean raftsman, during his Ice Rib Challenge, ocean sailing Palermo to New York in an inflatable boat,(HERE’S THE ENTIRE STORY) also passing through the ice. A very evocative photo, the one above, from which it occurred to us to take up a topic that is, in its own way, “hot” this season: the sea, even in winter when it is cold, is great for you! In fact, boating and being in contact with the sea are good allies for humans, especially when we are crushed by stress and work. For those who live near the sea, it is easier, but even for those who live far away, spending a few weekends at the beach and boating, although it is not hot, is very beneficial for health.

Five reasons why the sea in winter is great


Not only when you are sick, but even before that you can experience “thalassotherapy.” Thalassa in Greek actually means “sea.” How does it work? Through the absorption of substances contained in seawater- trace elements and salts-restoration of organic balance is promoted. The body becomes stronger and more resistant to external aggression. Thalassotherapy on the healing action of the marine climate, the sea itself and its products.


Relaxation is very important and to maintain good health. Blue is the color of the sea and is generally considered a relaxing color for the eyes and mind. According to some studies this color is actually able to reduce blood pressure and body temperature helping people to relax more and thus keep us healthier.

Winter symptoms

Seaside areas, being generally windier, often have cleaner air. It should also be considered that contact with this environment stimulates the immune system and thus helps us stay healthy and respond better to illness and flu symptoms. In addition, the sea is a real panacea for allergy sufferers because it acts as a natural aerosol by making respiratory symptoms improve, thanks to the presence of iodine, which is also recommended for those suffering from reduced thyroid functioning.


The sea is not only experienced in summer, but also during winter. As you leave the harbor in winter you will rediscover the pleasure of going to sea when there is no one around you. Besides, fishing in winter can also prove “profitable,” you just need to know how to do it.
