PRADA CHALLENGE 2003 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

http://www.pradalunarossa.com

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

NOVEMBER 14, 2002

QUOTE FROM TORBEN GRAEL

Torben Grael, tactician on Luna Rossa, at the end of today's racing said: "Today's match was very close, like yesterday. However, today we had a little more difficulties in the upwind legs, but we are still making good moves on the downwind runs. We hope to improve our performance in tomorrow's match. The leading boat has a definite advantage in the upwind legs, especially if she has an edge on speed, as she can control every move of her opponent. In the downwind legs it's the opposite. We used this tactical advantage in the runs as well as we could today, but Alinghi defended well right until the end and won. Luna Rossa is improving and I like to think that we still have enough margin to improve".

ENDS
