by Venezia Challenge
Torvar Mirsky has signed an agreement to helm Venezia Challenge to the America’s Cup’s adventure. Born in 1986, Australian Torvar began his sport career very early, bringing home his first victory when he was only 12. Nowadays Torvar, just 25, is fifth in the ISAF world ranking (second in 2010).
'It’s our first choice' – says Cesare Pasotti, Venezia Challenge’s team manager: 'Torvar is young, motivated and extremely skilled, so I asked Carlo Magna and Emanuela Pulcino to bring him on board'. From the 14th of June, Torvar Mirsky will train in Palermo, at the Club Canottieri Roggero di Lauria, Venezia Challenge’s official sailing club, and then in July he will move to Cascais on the AC45.
In the past few days another important name entered in Venezia Challenge - Ganga Bruni will be Team Coach. Ganga is an athlete with great experience in the most prestigious classes. This will be his first time training an America’s Cup challenge.
Ganga, born in Palermo, 37 years old, is a member of Italian Olympic team in Sydney 2000, strategist in +39 America’s Cup Team and Azzurra Team and four times world champion (one in catamaran class). Venezia Challenge website Americas Cup website
