Luna Rossa can't seem to buy any luck as they hit a large fish, or a seal, or maybe a log, while foiling downwind during their solo LLouis Vuitton Cup race today. Their scheduled opponent, Artemis, is not yet ready to race, but was out practicing on the South Bay.
Luna Rossa's crew suffered no injuries, though the boat reared-up at a very steep angle after striking the fish and breaking their rudder, and then slamming down and stopping. Photos by Sail-World photographer Chuck Lantz.
