Event Category: Coppa America
First night, Italian, of racing from Auckland, first impressions, first sweet and bitter emotions for Luna Rossa at the World Series. We will discuss this in detail in the 1 p.m. episode of the “The Cup Newspaper”, with guests “guru” Luca Bassani, the founder of the Wally brand, and David Ingiosi, kiter, journalist, and eclectic sailor, who will keep our Bacci Del Buono and Mauro Giuffrè company, live on our page Facebook, on our channel Youtube and in this Milan Yachting Week event space.
The performance of the boats is developing, and there are still many small and big problems to be solved by the teams. Therefore, it is difficult to be able to draw precise conclusions. The close confrontation between American Magic and Emirates Team New Zealand is certainly good news for the Cup because it portends that close racing, when the boats are at the top, may be a reality. Luna Rossa brings home positive indications in terms of clean flight and maneuvering ability, less good feelings in terms of pure speed. Decidedly solid, concrete and competitive American Magic which, despite being favored by the technical problem that affected the Kiwis with the delay in the prestart, has certainly shown that it is extremely competitive and tomorrow against Luna Rossa goes in search of further confirmation.
