Best gift

Share on social media

It took only one hour, eighteen minutes and twenty-five seconds for the crew of Robertissima III to win the 47th Barcolana. Vasco Vascotto, Robertissima III's tactician, had decided to go for the gennaker right after the opening salvo and it proved to be a great strategy, as none of the 1,700 sailors was able to overtake her.A perfect present to the yacht, which next year will be replaced by a new generation vessel, and to her mastmaster Cico Rapetti, who just the day before turned fifty. Rapetti won the Barcolana for the first time in his life.
