Sergio Frattaruolo and his Class 40″Extreme Sail Academy” is sailing to the “Americhe” trying to beat the crossing time on the Discovery Route. Together with Frattaruolo, the other four crew members: Pierpaolo Ballerini, Alexander Sachs, Simone de Lorentiis and Alessandro Drago.
The currently placement sees them already well beyond the Canaries, with the bow pointing to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. You can follow the progress on tracking Geomat www.geomat.it/DiscoveryRoute.php.
Christoforo Colombo took 40 days. Sergio Frattaruolo hopefully some day earlier, from 17 to 19!
