Sailor Spotlight: Roberto Cima

Meet Roberto Cima who will be representing Team Italy at this year’s LaserPerformance Collegiate Cup. Roberto has a long list of accolades to his name, some of them including:


  • 3° overall “European University Sailing Cup” J80, Cherbourg (FR) 2012
  • 3° overall “European University Sailing Cup” J80, Cherbourg (FR) 2013
  • 1° “European and Italian Championship” ASSO99, Brenzone (IT) 2014


Roberto says, “I’m attending the last year of the law faculty in Bologna. I started to sail when I was a child with the guys who will represent Italy with me in the LPCC.

Since 2013 I’ve also been working as a skipper in the Mediterranean sea. In the near future I’ll get my degree and I’ll keep sailing around the globe.”

Thanks, Roberto, for all of your help in getting a team together! We can’t wait to see these sailors in action.
