America's Cup: Luna Rossa foils on Day 1 - with single foil    
Sat, 3 Nov 2012


Luna Rossa Challenge were able to get their AC72 foiling on their first day of sailing on the Hauraki Gulf on Friday (NZT)


It was the first day of sailing for the Italian America's Cup Challenger starting in light winds which slowly increased top around 15 knots.

The AC72 sailed with only one foil, which was a little limiting however from an image from a team member's Facebook page it would seem that Luna Rossa were able to get foiling - an impressive feat in the circumstances. Other teams have been able to foil on their fourth day of sailing, which has become a benchmark.
