Sailor Spotlight: Fabiano Capuccini

Meet Fabiano Capuccini, a working student in his last year of University. Fabiano says,

“I’m studying Political science in Bologna and in the meantime I work with sailing boats. I’ve started sailing when I was 7 on Lake Garda and I’ve never stopped. I have some proud moments and one of those is the victory at the European Championship on the ASS099 class.

Meanwhile, I’ve started to work like a skipper and I’ve sailed in the Mediterranean Sea, in the Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean. I also have the Yacht Master License.

My accomplishments include:

3rd overall “European University Sailing Club” J80, Cherbourg (FR) 2012

3rd overall “European University Sailing Cup” J80, Cherbourg (FR) 2013

1st “European and Italian Championship” ASS099, Brenzone (IT) 2014.”


With an impressive list like that, Team Italy is definitely going to be tough competition.
