bressani-micolVittorio Bissaro and Silvia Sicouri, the “golden couple” of the Nacra 17, fresh winners of the Miami leg of the ISAF Sailing Word, will have to watch their backs on the way to Rio 2016. Another wonder duo has announced its candidacy for the Brazilian Olympic Games: Lorenzo “Rufo” Bressani and Giovanna Micol have decided to put themselves on the line, and knowing their competitive verve, rest assured that we will witness a season with sparks.

SUPPORTED BY FANTASTIC
The two sailors, both from Trieste, began their adventure in multihulls back in November aboard a Formula 18. In December Nacra arrived, and after a series of training sessions between Trieste, Anzio (under the wing of coach Matteo Nicolucci) and Palma de Mallorca, they decided to declare their intentions. They will make their debut at the 4th leg of the ISAF Sailing World Cup, the SAR Princesa Sofia Trophy, scheduled for March 29 to April 5 in the Balearic Islands. Supporting their campaign will be Lanfranco Cirillo, head of the Fantastica Sailing Team, which is proving to be an Olympic patron since it also has Michele Paoletti, on the Rio route in the Finn class, in its stable.
