sailorTHE TOP TEN
Leading the ranking is the highly voted Roberto Tomasini Grinover, former 2015 Sailor of the Year and winner of the last Barcolana with his Robertissima III. Now in the pipeline is his new maxi, which promises to be a hi-tech fireball. Then there are Edoardo Ferraro and Francesco Orlando, aces in 420, ahead of optimist Riccardo Sepe and O’pen BIC specialist Filippo Vincis. He follows Gianin VI, the beautiful Hallberg-Rassy 41 of Pietro Ciccio Supparo, winner of two Giraglie, ahead of laserist Paolo Giargia, young optimist Gaia Bergonzini, and 470ists Matteo Capurro and Matteo Puppo. Many, many young people, embodying the “social generation” in these early days. But there is also room for Salvatore Mantaci, the Sicilian who embarked on a solo crossing by quitting his job, and the great, great Vasco Vascotto, 25 world titles behind him.
