Coach and World class sailor

I started sailing almost accidentally and I never thought it would become my life. 

In 2005 I started Optimist and from 2009 to 2012 I was part of the Italian national team. 

In 2013 and 2014 I sailed in Laser 4.7, in 2015 and 2016 in the Olympic Laser Radial class, always representing Italy on the major championships. 

In 2017 I changed from single boat to double acrobatic 49er FX Olympic class with which I still sail for the Italian team.

Work experience: 

I became Italian Sailing Federation's first level coach and I worked as an instructor at the sailing school of my club Yacht Club Adriaco
