Local spectators came out in force to check out racing in Venice. Our friend Kenneth came all the way from Hong Kong to watch the AC45s in action on the Grand Canal. Close racing, close to shore makes for a big spectacle that all can enjoy.
“The Italian people love sailing, they love the America’s Cup, and they love Luna Rossa,” Luna Rossa Challenge’s Max Sirena said. “It was amazing how many people there were and how many boats we had on the water. And on Saturday there will be even more!”
Next stop on the America’s Cup World Series – Newport, Rhode Island, USA.
The 34th America´s Cup consists of three main stages – the America´s Cup World Series, the Louis Vuitton Cup and the America´s Cup Finals. Each AC World Series regatta will be a combination of practice and championship racing, with additional practice sailing on-site ahead of each event.
