Cameron Dunn to helm Mascalzone Capitalia on Wednesday's race

The string of five consecutive losses took its toll on Flavio Favini, helmsman of Mascalzone Capitalia. Vincenzo Onorato, the syndicate's head, took the decision to replace the Italian sailor and hand the helm of ITA-99 to Cameron Dunn. Here's Onorato's statement:

Five losses in a row have seriously affected our morale, it would be wrong to deny. In today’s sailing team meeting the burn from the losses was evident. However my men are not depressed but angry, with a real desire to recover and that is exactly the way I’d like them to be.

We’ve also felt the fatigue from the last days. The Cup is a long and strenuous commitment, for this reason I have decided to change the helmsman, for tomorrow’s race, from Flavio Favini to Cameron Dunn. We have very qualified and capable replacements and now is the time to make use of them.

I would like to thank all of those who have shown their affection and still believe in us: Mascalzone Latino is still very much alive!
