 About the Team

Skipper: Paulo Cosentino
Boat: The Cat Came Back

The Yacht Club Argentino continues to get better and better with every Invitational Cup they compete in. This year they are bringing back most of the same team that competed in the 2013 Invitational Cup. Since they have been sailing together for many years they hope their experience will give them an extra edge. To get ready they have been practicing on a chartered SOTO 33 and have started a physical training program. Paulo M. Cosentino will be leading the team at the helm with Javier Tavella as tactician. Both Cosentino and Tavella have over 40 years of experience and have sailed in events such as ORC Nationals, Soling Worlds, and Buenos Aires Week. They are excited for the upcoming event and are "ready for this new challenge."
