Rome, October 26 - The Prada-backed Luna Rossa team
on Friday launched the AC72-class wingsailed catamaran they will
use in their bid to win the 34th America's Cup in Auckland New
Zealand.
Luna Rossa had to build the state-of-the-art boat in just
six months as they only presented their late entry to challenge
for sailing's top prize in April.
The boat was developed in such a short space of time with
the help of an agreement to share technical data with another
Cup challenger, Team New Zealand.
It was presented in waters of the Waitemata Harbor in
Auckland, where Luna Rossa made its Cup debut 12 years ago,
because the teams have also agreed on a joint training programme
over the coming months.
World famous fashion designer Miuccia Prada christened the
boat in the traditional way by shattering a bottle of champagne
across the bowsprit.
