lilliaNext door to the museum is the yachting equivalent of the Scuderia Ferrari; Lillia. We were treated to a guided tour of the ship yard by its owners, Domenico Lillia and his son, Stefano (another privilege!). A poster for 2006 I happened to spot on the wall listed the following main victories: the world first, second, third and fourth places; the European first and second places; the North American first and third places; and the South American first, second and third places. Not even Ferrari could rival that! Domenico explained that the top sailors decide on the position of every piece of tackle down to the nearest milimetre. He also demonstrated quite clearly why you need to be a top athlete to be a top sailor. In fact, the illustration shows why you need to have extremely strong stomach muscles alone. Quite a day.
