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!
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.
