Marco Nannini - Event Director

Marco Nannini is a sailor, writer and consultant in marketing and communication with a financial background.

I know the commitment it takes to undertake a round the world sailing project. I experienced the sense of achievement it brings and the sacrifice it takes. I never underestimated the risks involved, i learnt the importance of mitigating and managing them. I wish to provide a safe and budget friendly event to achieve a dream that many sailors have.
