Meet Mascalzone Latino's Vincenzo Onorato

Meet Mascalzone Latino's Vincenzo Onorato!
7pm, Wednesday, February 17 at the UMass Club, 225 Franklin St (downtown Boston)

Join us in welcoming Vincenzo Onorato to Boston!  Meet over cocktails and hear his talk on Mascalzone Latino, the America's Cup and youth sailing! Thank you to PIB for making this event possible! 

There is only room for a limited number of Courageous guests, so RSVP asap!

Courageous Sailing and Italian Professionals in Boston (PIB) invite you to meet Vincenzo Onorato, patron of the famous Mascalzone Latino sailing team! Vincenzo will talk about leading an America's Cup team (which continues to compete on the international Farr 40 and Melges 32 circuits) and his exciting new project:  The Mascalzone Latino School of Sailing, a very Courageous-like sailing school in Naples, Italy, that takes kids off the streets of Naples and teaches them not only to sail, but also fix boats, repair engines and more.  In Vincenzo's words: "When you are sailing it's necessary to trust one another and work together constructively, or else you don't succeed; the same can be said about life...what we have created is not only a school of sailing, but of life as well."  We couldn't agree more.

Vincenzo is visiting Boston just for this event, to raise awareness for the Mascalzone Latino sailing school AND to explore a possible collaboration with Courageous, so please attend if you can to show your support!  It's a great opportunity to hear about sailing at the highest levels, and another reminder about how supporting youth sailing is not only the future of the sport, but a powerful way to change kids lives for the better.

Courageous Sailing thanks PIB for making this event possible, and welcomes PIB to the Courageous community!

When: Wednesday, February 17 at 7pm 

Where: University of Massachusetts Club, 225 Franklin St, 33rd Floor

What:  Vincenzo will speak about his experience winning 6 world sailing cups, leading an America's Cup team, and launching a non-profit organization to train kids in marine-related sports and trades.
