WHO IS MARCO NANNINI, THE AUTHOR OF THE FOUR-DVD PRACTICAL COURSE
Marco Nannini, from Turin, graduated in economics from England. In 2004 he moved to London where he worked in finance and cultivated his passion for sailing.

In 2009 he participated in and won in his class the legendary OSTAR, the solo race from Plymouth UK to Newport in the United States. In 2010 Marco bought the Class40 that had participated in the first edition of the Global Ocean Race.
