Tough life for the grinder aboard the AC 75. VIDEO

Good to be tall and muscular. But are you sure? Just ask the grinders of the new AC 75s. We could already tell from the images of the boats under sail, but a short video from Luna Rossa takes us on board in the cockpit, right to the stations of the “giants” on board. These are slits dug in the cockpit, closed at the sides, where grinders are lowered and their heads barely emerge. The first one from the bow works with his gaze toward the stern (not suitable for those who get seasick), the others look toward the bow in a position that is no longer comfortable. The reason for this choice? Prevent grinders with their physique from producing drag. Obligatory, therefore, is the choice to place them in a protected zone that allows only a portion of their helmet to emerge. Tough life for grinders.
