Hi all + request

Hi all,

My name is Paolo, I'm 50 and I live in Italy.

In '90 and '91 I worked for Class 1 Rainbow Team (101 - SDA - Edoardo Polli/Others; 201 - Bagutta - Steve Curtis/Vincenzo Polli; 777 - Mitsubishi - Marco Riganti/Duilio Boffi).

During '90 or '91 CTC, the racers found a very thick fog near Torquay; Steve Curtis literally went up a beach with his boat. I remember seeing, on local newspapers, some pics of his Bagutta on the beach, but unfortunately I haven't got them anymore.

Can anybody help me finding (or posting) some of these pics?

Thanks a lot!

thank you topgun!

I went through some of the videos, and I even found myself in the 1990 Guernsey one! Great Steve Curtis says I'm the assistant to the Team Manager at -13.10....

I always thought of the Rainbow Team as a flock of some 50 sheeps, with Mr. Polli as landowner, Pippo Cascone as shepherd and me as sheepdog...

This gave me a chance to see again many people I lost contact with, and to live again the thrills I experienced 20 years ago.
