Riccardo Tosetto was born 35 years ago in Cittadella and learned to sail from a very young age. At the age of 14, he met Angelo Preden, a famous ocean sailor, with whom he began practising deep-sea sailing during long transfers in the Mediterranean.
After several seasons, he decided to turn this passion into a profession, and in November 2006 he bought 'Blue Drake' together with his master.
In just two years, Riccardo sailed the entire Mediterranean, spent a season in the Caribbean and made two Atlantic Crossings, covering more than 25,000 miles.
He spends most of his time in the Aegean Sea, known to skippers for its constant and sustained winds. For several years, he has participated with his own racing boat in the major competitions in the North Adriatic, achieving several first places overall and several in class. The Globe Solo Challenge is the most important project of his life so far.
