Yesterday during the evening training session a few miles from Cagliari (Sardinia) on the boat АС75 “inveterate” Challenger for the America’s Cup Italian team Luna Rossa – collapsed mast.
Fortunately, no one was hurt. Lost their masts and sailing arms the boat was quickly towed to the base of Luna Rossa nearby, and quickly began to repair.
The team leaders reacted to the incident philosophically, noting in a press release: “the fact that we were the first of the contenders for the Cup, who lost the mast, of joy, of course, is not enough. But, on the other hand, if you do not work on high, you will never learn what the limits of your ability!”rossa
