We’ve been waiting for it for almost four years, and now it’s time for the America’s Cup. At 4:10 a.m. Italian time on March 10, the 36th America’s Cup kicks off, with defender Emirates Team New Zealand and challenger Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team on the water. The series will be best of 13 races; the first to reach 7 wins will win.

Needless to say, the stakes are enormous, and in fact already a few days ago we received notice from Luna Rossa’s team that the sailors will not be giving interviews or statements in these approaching hours to eve, due to a press silence that has already lasted for a few days. Max Sirena closed everyone in the “bubble” the last hours before such an important regatta for the careers of all Luna Rossa team men should be lived with serenity and concentration.

THE WEATHER.

The big topic these hours, of course, is weather conditions, with a first day of the America’s Cup, from two races up for grabs, expected to take place in winds around 15 knots from the northeast, with possible strengthening to as high as 17-18 knots. Under these conditions it is likely that Race Director Ian Murray will take the two boats to the A course, as he has done at other times during the Prada Cup. The weather theme clearly overlaps with that of the boats, and the fact that theoretically the wind conditions on the first day could be more favorable to Team New Zealand. With a continuation of the series, starting on the 12th (racing every day until the conclusion) that could instead feature very light winds. But in New Zealand everything changes in a matter of hours, and even the forecast for the first day may vary slightly.

THE PRESENTATION OF THE MATCH

We will discuss this and much more in a special episode of The Cup Journal, March 9 at 1 p.m., live on Facebook and YouTube. Bacci Del Buono and Mauro Giuffrè’s guests will be Mino Taveri, Giovanni Ceccarelli and designers from Northern Light Composites.


For those who also want to know what will be said at the press conference tonight at 10 p.m. live at the player below the official event from Auckland.
