Andrea Pozzi competed in motocross as a hobby. That didn’t please Pozzi’s wife, who always worried he would suffer serious injury in an accident.
“One day she said it was either motocross or family. I really didn’t have much of a choice,” said Pozzi, a resident of Milano, Italy.
So Pozzi decided to take up sailboat racing, even though he had absolutely no experience in the sport. “I went out on a friend’s cruising boat and had so much fun. I got crazy for sailing and I decided I needed to have a boat,” he said.
