Louis Vuitton Cup: Broken rudder slows Luna Rossa in solo race

Luna Rossa Challenge today raced alone for the fourth time, as Artemis Racing still was not ready to race.

it was clear that the Swedish team wouldn’t be on the start line, the umpires terminated the race ten minutes after the start, black-flagging Artemis Racing and awarding the point to Luna Rossa Challenge (note: rules 60.5 and 44.1c of 34th America’s Cup Racing Rules).

Luna Rossa continued to sail on the race course, but soon after rounding the windward gate, on the second run, suddenly stopped foiling and 'seated' on the water, considerably reducing the boat speed.

'Unfortunately we hit something and the lower part of the port rudder broke, forcing us to dock in' explained skipper max Sirena. 'It was a real shame because we were sailing quite well and had found a good trim; it would have been interesting to collect more data. In these unfortunate circumstances it is comforting for us to know that it was an accident and not a structural failure of our equipment.'

Sunday, July 28th, Luna Rossa Challenge will face Emirates Team New Zealand for the last time in the Round Robin of the 34th America’s Cup. The race is scheduled to start at 12.15 local time.

Today’s crew was: Max Sirena (skipper and pitman), Francesco Bruni (tactician), David Carr (pitman/grinder), Pierluigi de Felice (trimmer), Simone de Mari (primary grinder), Chris Draper (helmsman), Xabi Fernandez (wing trimmer), Nick Hutton (bowman), Lele Marino (wing grinder), Marco Montis (freestyler) and Wade Morgan (hydraulic grinder).

Conditions: Thursday July 25th, San Francisco: partly cloudy skies, 13-14 knots of wind from South-West, flat sea, flood tide 2 knots.
