Our history

During 2014, Alexandra Stalder and Silvia Speri, from Fraglia vela Peschiera, met each other during the local regattas. Fabrizio Marzocchi, Silvia’s trainer advised her to try to go boating together and the coach Michele Gallina suggests to Alexandra to try. They buy a used boat and start going on 420, coached by Luigi Stellario Rago.

In 2015 they started together this new adventure at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine, but each still belonged to their old club. They immediately find a great feeling and with time established an extraordinary complicity. From the first moment they worked hard to improve their skills on this new boat. In the same year they qualified for the world championship in Japan, but they renounce it due to the high costs involved in the trip. They become part of the U19 National Youth Group with coach Gianluigi Picciau. In 2016, they bought a new boat and thanks to the continuous effort they are selected for the European Championship in Hungary, the World Championship in Sanremo and the ISAF World Championship in New Zealand. In Hungary they get the bronze medal and in New Zealand they won the silver medal. Thanks to these results the Italian Sailing Federation assigns them the title of sailor of the year. In 2017 they are selected for the European championship at Riva del Garda and for the World Championship in Australia but they give up because they decide to start a new adventure: 49erFX in the Olympic class.

Thanks to the different results obtained they received scholarship offers to study in the United States, but they decide to give up to follow their dream: the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

They are now trained by Luigi Rago.
