 Portimão Global Ocean Race – Marco Nannini ITA joins fleet
Born in Italy, but based in the UK, 32 year-old Marco Nannini, acquired Class 40 'Mowgli' - the yacht sailed by Jeremy Salvesen and David Thomson in the 2008-09 Portimão Global Ocean Race, to become entrant Nr. 13. Nannini raced double-handed in the Rolex Fastnet 2007 and single-handed in the bluQube Solo 1000 race as a qualifier for the 2009 OSTAR, during which he took line honors and first on corrected time in the IRC3 Class. The Portimão round-the-world race with stopovers for doubles on Class 40s was organised for the first time last winter. Actually the winners of this first edition, Boris Herrmann/Felix Oehme GER, are still missing on the entrants list, but the participation is already very international. At least 20 teams are expected. Read the report.
