    Talking to their foils, the Italians asking their wings to deliver when it counts most..!  :D

    There is a lot of talk now about the twin Helmsman approach as one of the key reasons Luna Rossa is winning races. They copped a lot of criticism early about this but it makes you wonder? They may have found a small advantage? Extra Grinders too over Ineos but nobody saying that's an advantage?

    $1220.00 for a pair of sneakers..! Mr Bertelli can afford to win a stack of cups if people are paying that sort of money for something most of us would pay $60.90  :D https://www.prada.com/au/en/men/shoes/re-nylon_shoes/products.prada_wheel_cassetta_sneakers.2EG323_1YFL_F0009.html

    Luna Rossa practicing Eagle Mode sailing with both foils down so I wonder if they expect to have to do this against Ineos? There are times when it comes in handy.

    They have a grab handle on the back of the main on some of the other boats. Not on Luna Rossa I think as they don't switch sides. The million $$$ question is who has found the more speed and or VMG between Luna Rossa and Ineos. When Luna Rossa was racing AM (No that it lasted long) it gave Ineos...

    I think it's mini crisis time for Luna Rossa. When your in front why not cover? They are not making decisions consistent with winning this event let alone the cup. I know deep down Jimmy doesn't agree with their strategies to date. Jimmy is pissed with the umpires mean time Ineos sail away. The...

    Anyone found out what the real motive was to head out without a mast? I would have thought foil testing would be better in normal config unless they are doing other mods to the mast and or boom etc and due to time limitations can do the foil testing without these? P.S. It was said they would be...

    At about the 7.40 mark in this clip it appears Luna Rossa put the after burners on and run down the Kiwis? Could be camera angle but sure looked encouraging for Luna Rossa fans.! Of course you can't read shit into some of these videos but for those that believe..!  :D

    They ended u[ quite close to the Red Channel Marker just after landing and re-gaining control but never looked out of control.

    It's so raw from what we see that's it's really impossible to tell if anyone has an edge with their B2's yet? ETNZ will be out shortly and I'm tipping we'll still be confused. Off course we all know that it's very hard to tip against the Kiwis. If you had to bet on the challengers Luna Rossa has...

    Agree with you mate I only really have it ATM for another AC feed. It will also come in handy at times with the Vendee. Sailor Girl for example uses FB for her live feeds etc etc.

    This is from Justin who shot the video above where they look slow. This makes sense.  Luna Rossa during her day out sailing with the other 2 challengers around. These were her last maneuvers before heading back into port. The westerly had dropped down to around 11kts at Bean Rock (situated out...

    Yeah it looked slow and not sure about the video speed.? Almost as if they were testing a mode or something else at times? It looked very light and at times I'm wondering if they were purposely sailing too high to see at what point the boat would stay up or fall down? I'm only surmising?

    Some very nice footage of Luna Rossa today in light conditions and shows them transitioning from displacement to foiling.

    Race 1 Prada vs Britania has ended with a narrow victory to the Italians who crossed the line some 10-15 seconds in front of the British.  Video of the boats racing below.  https://www.facebook.com/684407806/videos/10158093230897807/
