Meanwhile in Valencia... Luna Rossa's STP65 is back on the water
Not all action in Valencia is related to the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series or the America's Cup. Luna Rossa put their brand new STP65 back on the water, while the team is training on ITA-94. From what we understand, the maiden race of the new Italian yacht will be the Hublot Palmavela next April.
As we speak there are three teams today training on America's Cup yachts. Luna Rossa on ITA-94, Shosholoza on RSA-83 and Greek Challenge on the K-Challenge FRA-93. Vasco Vascotto's Damiani Italia put an end to their training here and SWE-73 is back in the Victory Challenge base.
