Brand new to the 52 SUPER SERIES will be America’s Cup Challengers of Record, Luna Rossa. The return of Patrizio Bertelli’s Luna Rossa challenge to the America’s Cup arena sees the team join the 52 SUPER SERIES for the first time. The team is run by project director Max Sirena and includes many sailors with significant TP52 class experience, not least tactician Vasco Vascotto who sailed, and won, for many years with Azzurra. Skipper is Francesco Bruni. They have put in place an exacting training programme from their base in Cagliari, Sardinia with a chartered previous generation TP52 where they have also run a big talent scouting initiative designed to bring talented, new young sailors into their programme. With their new Botin design they will work closely with Azzurra on an open book initiative sharing ideas and technology.
