H Luna Rossa και επίσημα διεκδικήτρια του 34ου America’s Cup

Όπως είχαμε ήδη ανακοινώσει από τις 21 Οκτωβρίου η Luna Rossa θα συμμετάσχει στο επόμενο America's Cup. 
Σήμερα με επίσημο δελτίο τύπου από την ομάδα και το AC ανακοινώθηκε η συμμετοχή και η αποδοχή της ομάδας ως διεκδικητή του τροπαίου. Μάλιστα η ομάδα Luna Rossa Challenge 2013 ανακοίνωσε και τη συνεργασία της με την ομάδα Emirates Team New Zealand ως το τέλος Δεκεμβρίου 2012 που περιλαμβάνει πλήρη πρόσβαση σε όλα τα δεδομένα, σχεδιαστικά και αγωνιστικά, των Νεοζηλανδών.
Το σκάφος του Luna Rossa AC72 θα κατασκευαστεί στην Ιταλία και όλα τα υπολοιπα στοιχεία θα έρθουν από τη Νέα Ζηλανδία.
Το πρόγραμμα της ομάδας περιλαμβάνει το άνοιγμα μιας βάσης στο
Auckland για να κάνουν κοινή προπόνηση με την ομάδα Emirates TNZ, καθώς και συμμετοχή σε όλο το πρόγραμμα του America’s Cup World Series (ACWS) με τα AC45.
Από το Μάρτιο του 2013 η ομάδα Luna Rossa θα συνεχίσει την προετοιμασία της και την τεχνική εξέλιξη του AC72 στο Σαν Φρανσίσκο για να συμμετέχει στο 34ο America's Cup.

Διαβάστε τις δηλώσεις των ανθρώπων κλειδιά για αυτή την απόφαση:
PATRIZIO BERTELLI, Team Principal of Luna Rossa Challenge 2013, declared:
“I am certain that the co-operation of Luna Rossa with Emirates Team New Zealand will produce excellent results, giving to both teams a faster and more effective development both in the technical and in the sporting fields. The choice of the Circolo della Vela Sicilia as challenging yacht club is also significant: I think it is important, in a moment like this, to underline the unity of our country also in the field of culture and sports”.
AGOSTINO RANDAZZO, President of the Circolo della Vela Sicilia, declared:
“It is a true honour for the Circolo della Vela Sicilia to challenge for the America’s Cup with a prestigious and beloved team like Luna Rossa. I therefore thank Patrizio Bertelli both for having selected us and also for the reasons behind his choice. I am sure that our challenge will contribute to create a strong spirit of emulation and will attract many young Sicilians to the sport of sailing”.
MATTEO de NORA, Team Principal of Emirates Team New Zealand, declared:
“I am very happy of this co-operation: since 2000, when they won the Louis Vuitton Cup, Luna Rossa is certainly the most loved and respected foreign sailing team in New Zealand. This partnership will increase the technical value of the teams. We look forward to close co-operation on land and intense rivalry on the water.”
GRANT DALTON, managing director of Emirates Team New Zealand, said:
“The cooperation with Luna Rossa is another step towards the long-term objective of establishing our team as a provider of technology and services that highlight New Zealand’s marine industry expertise. We look forward to sharing our design office resources and cooperating with two such well-respected names in top-level sailing.”
The team Luna Rossa was established in 1997 by Patrizio Bertelli with the original name of “Prada Challenge for the America’s Cup 2000”. At its first attempt the team wins the Louis Vuitton Cup – the challengers’ selection series - in 2000, with a record of 38 victories over 49 races. Luna Rossa has participated also in 2003 and in 2007 it reached the Louis Vuitton Cup final. Luna Rossa is currently participating in the Extreme Sailing Series, the Extreme 40’ catamarans circuit, where it is leading the overall standings.
Emirates Team New Zealand is the current holder of the Louis Vuitton Cup and is leading the America’s Cup World Series. Established in 1985 as the New Zealand Challenge, Emirates Team New Zealand has won both the America’s Cup twice and the Louis Vuitton Cup twice. It also participates in the Audi Med Cup and Extreme Sailing Series international racing circuits and will be at the start of the 2011/2012 Volvo Ocean Race with the yacht CAMPER.

The Circolo della Vela Sicilia, founded in 1933, is one of the oldest and most prestigious yacht clubs of the Mediterranean. Its club house is in Mondello, a few kilometres from the centre of Palermo. Throughout the years the Circolo della Vela Sicilia hosted many prestigious national and international regattas, including the J 24 and Star Class European Championships, the Italian Olympic classes Championship and the “Palermo – Monte Carlo” offshore race.
