Why Garibaldi Sailing?
The answer will begin with a question; Where was Giuseppe Garibaldi born? Where did he grow up?
In my hometown, Nice.
Although often attached to Italy, the name of Garibaldi, should first resonate in the County of Nice, a time when this city was neither Italian nor French.

His father, his particular Catholic education, benefiting from learning the Italian, decisive in his future.
Garibaldi, father of the Italian homeland, united in criticism, sometimes severe and hilarious, Italy.
And that is what will give rise to a gigantic homage the same year, that of General George Vancouver, discovering British Columbia.
Who chooses one of the most beautiful mount, to celebrate it.
So when I discover by chance that 2015, Garibaldi will welcome me to my adopted area, named after a protected natural park, a lake of unparalleled visual purity while wearing a majestic mountain. What is Mount Garibaldi.
