Like every skipper worth crewing for, Kilroy knows that winning is a group effort. "I have a great crew," he says. "Federico Michetti runs the team and trims kite and jib. Harry Melges trims main. Rufo Bressani is our tactician. He's new to the program, and he's done an amazing job. Justin Smart has been my pit guy for the last thirty some years. He's the rock of our team. He's been with me from the Maxi class, the Transpac 52, everything. Luca Feravali is our mast man. Martino Tortarolo is our all-around guy, and we had a new bow guy, since our regular bowman broke his leg skiing over New Years.
