Mario Girelli was born in 1966 and when he was around 25 years old he developed his passion for the sea and the watersports such as the windsurf and the monotype yachts. Then he started his adventure sailing with several yachts along the Mediterranean sea.
After the first atlantic crossing the adventure with Class40 had a true effect in 2010.
As a founder member of the team ITA86, Mario, hasn't missed a regatta: from the Rolex Giraglia to the Rolex Malta Middle Sea Race, to the 900 miles of Saint Tropez, the Palermo-Montecarlo, the Florio's Trophy and the Roma per Due... very often in the top three!
In 2014-2018, on board of Class40 PatriciaII Ita86 he took part in the ROMA per UNO (560 miles on the route Rome Lipari Rome), the first single handled regatta in the italian seas, and in all the other single handled regattas.
He fixed the new RECORD of the ROMA-HAMMAMET, 355 miles in 39 hours 24 minutes and 23 seconds.
He can boast over 20.000 navigated miles and has a big passion for the offshore sailing both single or double. Sailing and travel in order to discover the world represents his life choice.
After many regattas and so many miles successfully sailed, he dedicated himself to the command of sailing boats and catamarans for beautiful cruises, so he started with Sciremundiyachtcharter idea, which is the idea of knowing the world by sailing for those who love the sea and the lands that overlook it ..
