  1. Bruni in SailGP alongside Nathan Outteridge https://nonsolonautica.it/20/04/2021/diporto-nautico/sport/sailgp-e-ufficiale-checco-bruni-entra-a-far-parte-del-team-giapponese/?fbclid=IwAR2WGIzPtYWxpbG756JZy7XQfvrRGYT5481eWffQ_uaq_Za9L7gG3FqtChk
  2. The Italian team is back home. One by one also the sailing team left New Zealand towards Italy. The last to leave was Max Sirena, yesterday. While still waiting for an official statement from Patrizio Bertelli regarding the participation in the next edition of the Cup, the trophies won by Luna Rossa arrived in Italy too.
  3. Luna Rossa (the boat) was recently interviewed about the rumoured eventuality of a 1 - 1 Match between xTNZ and INEOS. We have the picture with the answer embedded
  4. And here is the same article in Italian from Fare Vela https://farevela.net/2021/04/15/luna-rossa-cosi-funzionano-i-sistemi-che-regolano-un-ac75/?fbclid=IwAR0OzFlkQ7jue4j4UszuFSbDgMy-fYjgqy9qb3AYLdTjgYLvTv-qq9cMaiI
  5. Actually, I think it's more of a marketing move, in case. Ferrari is one of the excellences of Made in Italy. The Agnelli family, owners of the FIAT group, Ferrari, Juventus etc.., has always been involved in sailing and they have a long history in the AC, being behind the first Italian challenge ever, Azzurra 1983.
  6. Still rumours but found several sources on the matter. http://ventoevele.gazzetta.it/2021/04/12/nella-prossima-coppa-anche-ferrari-sara-con-luna-rossa/
  7. As it seems, for winning the AC you need not only to be the best helmsman in the world, but also the best in driving the development and give the feedback to the design team. Ben is still one of the best helmsman (if not the best) in the world, but I don't know if maybe Burling was better in the other aspect. And being also the boss of the team didn't help him focusing on sailing and development. In Luna Rossa, thanks to Max Sirena, Jimmy and Checco were 100% free to focus on their sailing and developmnet tasks!
  8. Interesting! What is the source of the rumours?
  9. I've had the same problem!!!! Eventually, I asked a Kiwi friend to call them on the phone and he had to try many times! That's absurd. I wrote them a letter of complaint on the subject. Unsubscribing should be doable with a mouse click!!
  10. Here you are. Bertelli didn't even thought of a 1 - 1 match when became COR, and in 2017 he was in a position to easily ask for that if he wanted, considering the huge help given to ETNZ.
