THE WHITE FISHBONE PRANK

But we were not the only ones joking. Our friends from theLisca Bianca Association, still in the running for Sailor of the Year, have seen fit to bring out a “special” April Fool’s Day edition of the Giornale della Vela, complete with a cover entirely dedicated to the legendary boat with which Sergio and Licia Albeggiani sailed around the world in the 1980s, accompanied by a gimmicky article signed by Mario Rossi which chronicled Lisca Bianca’s victory at the Sailor of the Year.
