The Yachts

Mascalzone Latino 32

Mascalzone Latino 32 and Vincenzo Onorato are new to the race, but both names are famous in yachting, primarily because the Italian ship owner headed two America’s Cup challenges - 2003 and 2007. Sailing this canting Cookson 50, he was crowned overall winner of the 2016 Rolex Middle Sea Race, won the ORC World Championship for Class A in July, and in October, won the Hong Kong to Vietnam Race by over two hours, clocking a top speed of 30 knots. Onorato founded the Mascalzone Sailing Team in 1993 and has won six world titles and many European championships with his Mumm 30, Farr 40 (three Worlds wins) and Melges 32 boats. As expected, will be crewed by some ‘Heavies’, including long-time skipper, Matteo Savelli, Flavio Favini and Tasmania’s best, Juggy Clougher.
