It was the first day of
sailing for the Italian America's Cup Challenger starting in light winds which
slowly increased top around 15 knots.
The AC72 sailed with only one
foil, which was a little limiting however from an image from a team member's
Facebook page it would seem that Luna Rossa were able to get foiling - an
impressive feat in the circumstances. Other teams have been able to foil on
their fourth day of sailing, which has become a benchmark.
