Quote From Francesco De Angelis


AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

OCTOBER 31, 2002

QUOTE FROM FRANCESCO DE ANGELIS

At the end of toady's racing Francesco de Angelis, skipper of Luna Rossa, said:

"We sailed two tough races today in quite shifty wind conditions. In both matches there have been changes in the lead that left the outcome of the races open right until the very end. A simple mistake would have easily compromised our final result. I am very satisfied with the way the boat went and how the crew performed, I wish to congratulate all the team.

“We still have two races to go before the end of Round Robin Two. We will face two very fast and strong teams. They will certainly be interesting matches that will give us the opportunity, once again, to assess our level of preparation, both from a technical point of view and in terms of crew performance".

The Race Committee has revised tomorrow's racing schedule. Luna Rossa ITA 74 will have a bye in the morning and will race Alinghi SUI 64 in the afternoon.
