    Thanks, Dolfi.

    I must say it's something of a concern that these days, we hear about a team's finances first, their manager second, their lawyers third, and nothing about their sailors.

    Bertone is not exactly a leading name in yacht design. It will be interesting to see how far this gets.

    I think something has been lost in translation, does that mean that there will be some female crew members?

    I found two translators that translated "female grafts" and one that translated "female couplings".....

    Jack Griffin's AC newsletter says the Luna Rosa hired Persico to build the first foil cant arm and that it failed much earlier than anticipated.......

    In complément, here is this Farevela article, polythecnicum schools of Milano and Torino will also be involved (Genova, and Imperia close, are the most direct access to the sea of these two big industrial towns) :
