Professionisti Italiani a Boston and the Italian General Consulate in Boston cordially invite you to the 2017 PIB Sailing Championship annual Award Ceremony.
For the 5th consecutive year, two young sailors from the nonprofit sailing school “Scuola Vela Mascalzone Latino” in Napoli have been selected, based on their credits, to race against three of the most renowned sailing centers in Boston.
The final award ceremony will take place at Italian Consulate in Boston, where the Consul Nicola de Santis will award the Neapolitan sailing team.
All are invited to participate, to support and honor these young sailors and most importantly to make this week a life-changing event for them.
The “Scuola Vela Mascalzone Latino” was founded by Vincenzo Onorato, President of the Italian racing team “Mascalzone Latino”, which competes in many different international sailing formats. The professional team was winner of six world sailing cups and competed in two America’s Cups.
The sailing school was founded with the goal of taking kids off the streets of the most underserved neighborhoods of Naples (Italy) and giving them the opportunity to learn how to perform better not only in sailing but also at school, and in life. This experience wants to be a reward for their efforts, and an incentive to do better. In both cases, it aims to motivate them to work hard to achieve their goals and give them hope in their potentials.
