Born on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Fabio sailed for the first time far from home on the shores of Long Island Sound. Since finding his sea legs, he has sailed many vessels from dinghies to larger keel boats: 420, Laser, J24, J105, Swan 53, and others. In 2010 he became a sailing instructor and the proud owner of a Jenneau 32 named Bahua. Weekends are spent in Montauk cruising to Block Island Sound and afar. In 2011, he participated in the Clipper Round the World race sailing more than 18,000 miles between England and Australia. Fabio is at his best on a boat, racing or sharing his salty sea stories with newcomers. He always has his bags packed for when the sea calls to the next great voyage.
