Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Prototype Day 12 Summary

165.000 Abonnenten

Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli is taking every advantage of the favourable conditions down in Cagliari, Sardinia, and today’ session was a longer one than the shakedown on Sunday with a morning session to catch the best part of the day

Umberto Molinaris, one of the more regular crew on the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli LEQ12 this winter was pleased with the day, chatting to the recon team afterwards saying: “the day was a really good day for us. We had/did a few mods (modifications) on the boat whilst the boat was in the shed so it was nice to go back (out) and check everything again.”

Section 41. Reconnaissance

a) As a campaign cost reduction measure, COR/D has mutually agreed to cooperatively implement a centralised reconnaissance programme for all teams for the reconnaissance of all Competitors’ AC75 Yachts, AC40 Yachts and LEQ12 yachts including both on-land and on-water imagery (the “Joint Recon Programme”).

b) Each team is assigned a two-person Recon Unit to follow their every on-water move, but it’s not that simple. The cameras are supplied and identical for all Recon Units. Drones are not allowed, and they can’t get that close, plus following a boat and keeping a camera steady at 45 knots isn’t that easy to begin with.

c) A three minute interview follows each on water day, and teams must answer the Recon Unit’s questions while trying not to give too much away. It’s a raw, unedited view of the never before seen behind-the-scenes development of a team and their boat to win the oldest trophy in international sports.
