LUNA ROSSA PRADA PIRELLI TEAM

The Luna Rossa team was born in 1997 when Argentine yacht designer German Frers proposed to entrepreneur Patrizio Bertelli to challenge for the 30th America’s Cup to be held in New Zealand in 2000. Since then, the team has taken part in five editions of the America’s Cup, winning the Challenger selection regattas twice – the Louis Vuitton Cup in 2000 and the PRADA Cup in 2021 – and competing in the final in 2007 and 2013. In the 36th America’s Cup presented by PRADA final match against the Defender Emirates Team New Zealand, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli achieved the best score ever by an Italian challenger in the history of the America’s Cup. Luna Rossa will represent the yacht club Circolo della Vela Sicilia once again in its challenge for the 37th edition of America’s Cup to be held in Barcelona, Spain in September and October 2024.
