About The skipper

Nationality: ITA

Status: Retired Entry

Where does your passion for sailing come from?

The passion for sailing comes from my immense passion for the sea, since I was a child I have tried to make the most of all its beauty, both below and above the surface…

What lessons have you learnt from sailing?

Boats have taught me so much… to the point of using them as a tool for social/work inclusion projects aimed at young people with integration problems…

What brought you to like single-handed sailing?

Solo sailing is a precious moment, where only you are responsible for everything that surrounds you, introspection, making the right decision at the right time, are actions you have to do alone in the moment but later can become the subject of social involvement…

What prompted you to sign up for this event?

It is the realisation of a dream that has finally become achievable thanks to the format which contains the budget and makes the event accessible.

How do you plan to prepare for this event?

I would like to create a team of ambitious young people with the passion of the sea who can follow me on this wonderful journey and obviously continue to sail as much as possible…

What do you think will be the biggest challenge?

Getting to the starting line…

Tell us about your boat or the boat you would like to have.

I currently sail on a Farr 40, very useful for athletic and technical preparation, but for this event I would like have a boat designed for short-handed ocean sailing like a Class40.
