San Francisco, Friday August 30th: After two days off the Luna Rossa Challenge team was back on the water for a series of training races against Emirates Team New Zealand. The Italian and the New Zealand teams sailed on the race course between the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz in 15-17 knots of wind and with 1 knot ebb current.
Max Sirena commented: “As anticipated, we’ve accepted to keep on racing against Emirates Team New Zealand even though the Louis Vuitton Cup finals are over. These racing drills are important for both teams because they allow us to test new solutions and let us understand if our technical developments were going in the right direction. We will continue to sail by ourselves the next few days to test further technical developments that for timing issues we could not check during the races.”
Luna Rossa will be back on the water tomorrow with the same schedule.
