Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli – The year to come

On the other hand ,On the eve of the Christmas break, Max Sirena, team director and skipper of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, reviews the America’s Cup campaign that began – albeit not officially – in summer of 2021 and in particular, the first months of sailing aboard the prototype launched October 13th: «I’m very satisfied, both from a sporting point of view, because we’ve had some excellent training sessions on the water, and from a research and development point of view, because we have continued our design programme according to schedule, improving it constantly thanks to the numerous feedbacks from the sailors».

«The launch of the prototype was important for several reasons», Sirena continues. «It was the first boat designed and built according to the rules of the new AC75 Class, it had to give us confirmation of the targets and performance simulated during the design phase and serve as a development platform for the new AC75; it also allowed us to resume training at sea.

Therefore, we started sailing very soon, even ahead of schedule, and generally speaking we are very happy. The fact that the design ‘package’ was well conceived is proved by the fact that we had very few problems and minimal malfunctions».

2023, in fact, will be packed with deadlines, sporting events and novelties that will require maximum commitment from everyone: «We will have a lot of new elements to test on the prototype; we will have to train with the AC40 (expected around April) and select the young men and women who will take part in the Youth & WomensAC; in parallel we will have to complete the construction of the flying hydrogen catamaran that we will launch in Cagliari in summer of 2023, start training in Barcelona and, of course, deliver the water lines of the AC75. We are closing 2022 with a very positive balance. We are happy, but also aware that mistakes are just around the corner and that we need to stay focused».
