Finally, the long awaited news for all sailing enthusiasts: Luna Rossa returns to Cagliari. The announcement came from Auckland, from skipper Max Sirena, during the presentation of the new protocols for the America’s Cup 2021.
Cagliari, thanks to its temperate climate and sheltered waters allows for sailing throughout the year, will be the base for the preparation training for the next new challenge in 2021.
But this is not the only news announced by the Luna Rossa team that has chosen to make a major change: the abandonment of catamarans in favour of monohulls. The AC75, the boat that will compete in the Cup, will measure 75 feet and will be a jewel of innovation and high performance technology.
For the Rule of Class, we will have to wait until March 31st, 2018, but it will be possible to see a first plan at the end of November 2017.
The great return of the team certainly represents an important opportunity for the city of Cagliari, which will be again involved in the world’s largest sailing circuit and home to a Prada Cup.
