  • Riccardo Fracchia

    I’m Riccardo Fracchia, 28 years old, and since I was very young I have planned to sail around the world and have always, or at least since I remember, had a great passion for sailing, sailboats and well, all boats. When I was 8 years old, my father bought the Clovis ketch, a very special boat. In 2002, after 5 long years of great work, Clovis became a traveling home for him and a constant thought for me. In 2014, after my father had been captain for almost 20 years, the time came for him to make some hard decisions, and the future without a “generational passing down” would have meant for him and Clovis making a final stop at some port. At only 24 years old I had under my belt thousands of miles of navigating the sea. From 2014 to today, my girlfriend Marika, my great friend Luca and I have made enormous efforts and great sacrifice to give Clovis what she deserves. The efforts are then rewarded by intense summers of sailing and training, and sharing some of the work and all of the satisfaction with our partners. We are getting ready once again for our big departure!
  • Rick Bailey

    Since childhood I’ve been a sailing and boating enthusiast. I grew up in Florida and had the great blessing to live on lake-front property. It seems as though a great deal of my growing-up years were spent on or in the water. I swam, dove, skied, sailed, fished, skim-boarded, and played ten months a year. The other two months were a little too cool for being in the water, but I often fished then. My adult life arrived. Years of study, work, family and responsibility flowed by. Almost on a whim, I bought an 18 foot day sailor – and I was hooked. We’ve had several boats since then – including a ski boat when my boys were more interested in speed than going slowly. We now have a Watkins 27 coastal cruiser. We sailed her in Jacksonville, FL, then trucked her up to Maryland when I got stationed in Washington DC. We love sailing the Chesapeake, and we love time spent on the boat. I happen to like all the maintenance aspects of boat ownership as well, so owning an old boat fits me: lots to repair and maintain!
