Quote From Francesco De Angelis

Quote From Francesco De Angelis

At the end of today's race Francesco de Angelis, skipper of Luna Rossa, said: "It's been a close and very hard fought race. We had two opportunities to pass OneWorld but somehow we were unable to capitalize on at least one of these. OneWorld sailed consistently well and won the race. We had to face a couple of difficult situations and the strong breeze didn't help. After breaking the pole in the second downwind leg we rounded the bottom mark behind and had to take a risk in the last beat by sailing away from OneWorld. I will now go back to the base to have a debriefing with the crew to analyze the match and wrap up today's racing".
