I have arrived late just to verify that you have loosened all the knots among the Stain.
I didn't also know that the first Achilli Motors / Schlax Group / Achilli Motors in green-white-red then became the Powermarine of Chiarugi of 1993.
I confirm that the Ottaviani was not the former second Achilli Motors. Even if very similar among them the two boats raced together in the 1991 like confirm the pic of the start of St. Tropez 1991.
Bardelle run in 1987 some races with the his green-yellow cat Stain of 38' before selling it to Stefano Casiraghi.
The second Americanino Jeans cat was a 36' of 1991 Bardelle, always Stain.
To which Stefano's Gancia you referred Tim? Pinot di Pinot former Sun International of 1989?
