Το Luna Rossa Swordfish κέρδισε το ACWS Naples, αλλά το ORACLE Team USA κέρδισε το 2012-2013 America's Cup World Series Season Championship

Led by helmsman Francesco Bruni, Luna Rossa Swordfish won the overall championship of the America's Cup World Series Naples.Bruni posted a thrilling win in the fleet racing finale, coming from behind on the final run in a race that saw the lead change hands three times.
The win was cathartic for the emotional Italian helmsman. Earlier in the day Luna Rossa Swordfish lost the match racing championship to ORACLE TEAM USA SLINGSBY. Bruni was critical of his performance in the loss after leading the match early on.
"This win was the only way to forget our mistake in the match racing," said Bruni, who will be the tactician aboard Luna Rossa Challenge's AC72 in the upcoming Louis Vuitton Cup, America's Cup Challenger Series (July 4-Aug. 30).

"The fleet race win really means a lot to me. We had an opportunity for the double win, but just missed out. I can't thank my crew enough, Paul Campbell-James, Max Sirena, Xabi Fernandez and Manuel Modena. They did a great job today."
Slingsby delivered on his stated goal: to secure the overall 2012-2013 America's Cup World Series season championship for ORACLE TEAM USA, the defense team in the upcoming 34th America's Cup (Sept. 7-21). He wrapped up that championship yesterday and today added the match racing title as well.
The second America's Cup World Series Naples surpassed last year's event in terms of spectators. Local event officials estimate that more than 1 million people have turned out along the Naples waterfront and in the Race Village to enjoy the week-long event.
America's Cup World Series Naples wraps up the 2012-13 America's Cup World Series season. The focus now shifts to the "Summer of Racing" planned for San Francisco. It begins in July with the Louis Vuitton Cup, the America's Cup Challenger Series, and concludes in September with the America's Cup Finals.
