PRADA CHALLENGE 2003 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
