Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Conquers The Prada Cup And Heads For The America’s Cup

The winning Italian team, led by Max Sirena, triumphed in the Series 7-1 in the PRADA Cup over Ineos Team UK, ensuring the right to challenge the New Zealanders on the occasion of the 36^ America’s Cup presented by PRADA, scheduled from the 6th to the 15th of March in the Hauraki Gulf.
For only the third time in history, an Italian team will compete in the America’s Cup Match. There have been only two precedents: in 1992 with the legendary Moro di Venezia led by Raul Gardini with Paul Cayard at the helm and in 2000, with the first Luna Rossa, entrusted to Francesco De Angelis.
This remarkable goal has been achieved through passion and intensive training, but also through the support of a massive technological foundation rooted in the creative and engineering skills that are inseparable from a perception of Italian identity recognized around the world.
Serving as the Official Timekeeper and being recognized as the leading Italian brand at the queen of regattas in support of an Italian team is an honor and a privilege for Panerai. Working with Max Sirena and the entire Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team has allowed Panerai to create a collection of advanced watches, inspired by the technologies and materials used in the America’s Cup, such as CarbotechTM, based on carbon fiber, and known for being used to build Luna Rossa’s AC75 monohull.
