PROFILE

Match racing and Finn class

Both of Simone Ferrarese's parents are sailors – and yet he is the only one of three children to have inherited this passion. He was on a sailboat for the first time at the age of two, and two years later he started to get involved in the sport himself. Little Simone, who made his regatta debut as six-year-old, had his mother as his first trainer. Since then the Italian has earned himself an excellent reputation in match racing. He won the tradition-steeped, prestigious Congressional Cup in 2013 and clinched the title of match racing European Champion a year later. Ferrarese has also won the BMW prestigious regattas the Giralia Rolex Cup and alongside his father and the BMW Sail Racing Academy team, the 2015 Copa del Rey.

FOUR QUESTIONS.

What do you do when you aren't sailing?
Surf, travel and hang out with friends.


What will sailing be like in ten years?
That is difficult to predict, but sailing will possibly become more and more spectacular. I also believe that monohull sailing will still be very prestigious.


What have you always wanted to do?
Try skydiving.


Sailing is...
...a way of living and means being at one with nature and yourself.
