Expecting the Unexpected is a true story of Pazzo Pirata’s one-year long travel of chasing the dream to become a professional sailor and his endless determination to pass countless obstacles. Starting with 200$ in his pocket, 20 years old Pirata found a way to leave Europe and sail across the Atlantic to Brazil. Then he traveled towards the Caribbean via Jericoacoara, Amazon, and Venezuela. His journey has been filled with hundreds of pazzo adventures. Pirata finally arrived in Sint Maarten hoping to find a job on a yacht. It was just about time, after 3 months of travel across half of South America, he had only 12$ left in his pocket. It was also at that time when Pirata saw for the first time a Volvo Open 60 Amer Sports One – an incredible ocean racing yacht that recently completed around the world race. It was a love from the first sight that turned his dream in a new direction. But Pirata was completely broke and first needed to survive. His powerful dream and endless determination have brought him onto a very eventful path that was far beyond his imagination. Eight months and hundreds of adventures later, Pirata beat Amer Sports One in Rolex Middle Sea Race, became a professional ocean racing crew, and understood that his sailing dreams are limitless. He dedicated his life for pazzo sailing adventures, and the snowball has started rolling. Expecting the Unexpected is a first part of the series of Adventures of Pazzo Pirata. Part Two will be released in summer 2019. To find out more and follow Pazzo Pirata’s recent sailing life, visit his website www.pazzopirata.com
