Bermuda (11th October 2013): Judging from his performance so far at the Argo Group Gold Cup, Italian skipper Francesco Bruni has been missing the Tour. He last competed in 2011 when he came home second to runaway leader Ian Williams. Aside from being part of several of the world’s top campaigns such as the Italian-Argentine TP52 Azzurra Sailing Team, the 2012 52 Super Series winner, for the last year Bruni has been full time with Patrizio Bertelli’s America’s Cup challenger, Luna Rossa.
On board the Italian AC72, Bruni called tactics for helmsman Chris Draper and he expects to be integral to Bertelli’s challenge for the 35th America’s Cup.
