Brand new to the 52 SUPER SERIES will be Challengers of Record, Luna Rossa.
The program for this project will be developed in two phases: a preliminary training – from February to May 2018 – on a provisional TP52, while the final yacht is under construction at the Persico boatyard in Bergamo (Italy). During this period about thirty of the best young Italian sailors will be involved in the training in order to develop a new generation of top level racing sailors and expand the Luna Rossa sailing team.
During the second phase – which will start in May 2018, after the launch of the new boat – the team will continue its preparation in the waters of the Adriatic Sea, with the fine-tuning of the new TP52. The final training of the racing crew will also take place in the Adriatic Sea, where the first races of the 52 SUPER SERIES will be held, with Francesco Bruni at the helm.
