Team Malingri’s sports calendar begins in July 2016 and ends one year later, in August 2017.

The dates of the records set are always indicative, as the time references require an adequate meteorological window established with the help of a meteorologist.

A fleet race that is the polar opposite of what the boat and crew have been designed and trained for.

This race is very important to Vittorio, even though it is not a competition and there are no winners, because it is a chance to spend time with other Italian athletes and the greater public around Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy.

2,545 miles. Record approved by the World Speed Sailing Record Council.

The official time to beat is 11 days, 11 hrs, 25 mins, set by Pierre-Yves Moreau and Benoît Lequin from France.

A full-fledged Atlantic crossing complete with long waves and tropical storms.

There are three navigation stages: departure from Africa to the other side of the Cape Verde Islands, navigation through the trade winds, and landing on the Caribbean Islands.

In the first part, there will be prevailing high crosswinds.

From Cape Verde on, the routier will play a crucial role to constantly follow the trade winds.

Landing in the Caribbean Islands with a risk of weather instability: storms and heavy rain or calm winds.

77 miles. Objective: set a reference time for the F20.

This will be the first time this has even been attempted, and was born from an idea of a navigator friend, Franco Manzoli. After 20 years in the making, now it is turning into a reality.

Awaiting approval

from the WSSRC (World Speed Sailing Record Council).

This would be the first sailing record approved in Italian waters.

The route is short and estimated travel time is around 4 hours. This is precisely why several attempts can be made in a limited time span.

458 miles.

Objective: the  F20 official time to beat is 52 hours 53 minutes 52 seconds set by Yvan Bourgnon and Jérémie Lagarrigue.

Vittorio has already attempted this route on board an 18-meter ORMA multihull.

This route is not very long, but it is very technical and requires at least 3 days of well-established mistral wind.

The difficulties could be large waves from the Gulf of Lion, lower winds between south Sardinia and the Strait of Sicily.
