“Every success is the result of teamwork. I like knowing that Sugar Project is a mix of everyone’s passion, talent and hard work. Sailmakers, rope suppliers, and shipyards are as valuable as a crew members. Thank you so much for your support!”
These are the words of the captain of Sugar 3, Paolo Bucciarelli.

“The opponents,” continued Paolo Bucciarelli, have been respectable, some we have known for a long time. There are new ones; the race can be a continuous surprise, and the development has led to quite a success. We deserved the victory, but it was not as easy as it may seem because there were many new things on board to manage, but in the end, we won.”.
