About Guglielmo Milan (webmaster)
Guglielmo is Whitefin’s First Mate. He discovered the love for sailing when, as a boy, he used to explore the bays around Lošinj island (Croatia) by dinghy. Guglielmo graduated summa cum laude in mechanical engineering from the University of Padova, where he was member of the Academic Sailing Team. He has a great experience of sailing on both private and charter yachts in the Adriatic, Ionian, Ligurian and Tyrrhenian seas.

He also enjoys ensuring every guest has a safe and pleasant experience whilst on board. When the yacht is in port, he is responsible for the maintenance, including rigging, mechanical/plumbing systems, wooden deck and brasses.
