Francesco Cappelletti is a professional Ocean Yacht Master with commercial endorsements based in Tuscany.  He has delivered yachts throughout the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic and also works as a charter skipper and sailing instructor. Francesco says of the GGR: “After learning about the Race, I found myself thinking how important accounts from the original Sunday Times Golden Globe Race have been during my training as a seaman. I used to sail without an autopilot, or electrical instruments and with only a Tilley storm-lamp as my light source. Sailing round the world alone in this basic way is a must-do-in-lifetime goal. I see the 2018 GGR as a chance to pay tribute to my core passion for the sea.“
Francesco plans to find a yacht this winter andto start refitting her early in 2017 In time to complete his 2000 mile proving trial in the Atlantic later in the year.
