Twenty-nine years after what was the Moro di Venezia’s great Italian adventure, people have not forgotten him and that is why they voted for him so much, taking him all the way to the final stage of the TAG Heuer 2021 Sailor of the Year – Epic 30th Edition. You know who we are talking about, the great Paul Cayard, former 1993 Sailor of the Year. The Moro’s helmsman is an absolute star player (world champion in ’88), triumphed with the Italian team in the ’95 Admiral’s Cup and the ’97 Whitbread (now known as the Volvo Ocean Race) at the helm of Sweden’s EF Language. Today he has shaved off his famous mustache, but he is still going strong on the race courses, especially on the Star his favorite boat.

An unmissable meeting. Who better to tell us about the America’s Cup “from the inside” than Paul Cayard, the helmsman of Moro di Venezia (in the America’s Cup final in 1992) and Luna Rossa’s great opponent in the 2000 Louis Vuitton Cup? The most famous mustache (or rather ex-baffo!) in Italian sailing – even though he is from California! – tells his story to our microphones. And we talk about the Cup that is getting Italian fans excited about Luna Rossa’s adventures! Paul Cayard WHO IS PAUL CAYARD The only non-Italian Sailor of the Year was Paul Cayard, legendary American helmsman of Raul Gardini’s Moro di Venezia, who came to benefit i the America’s Cup in 1992. An outstanding star player (world champion in ’88), he triumphed with the Italian team in the ’95 Admiral’s Cup and the ’97 Whitbread (now known as the Volvo Ocean Race) at the helm of Sweden’s EF Language. Today he has shaved off his famous mustache, but he is still going strong on the race courses. He was born in San Francisco in 1959. Go to event
