It has been a long long wait, from the day, in July 2007, when Alinghi crossed the finishing line of its final regatta against Team New Zealand, defending succesfully the 32nd America's Cup. One year and a half later in the same waters three teams of that cup are back sailing together! Alinghi, Luna Rossa, Desafio Espanol but also Team Origin are infact training for the Trofeo Desafio Espanol 2008 which will take place this weekend. Carlo Borlenghi was there giving us all the chance not to lose this great moment:

This has been also the chance to see the new Luna Rossa tactician Robert Sheidt. The renowned sailor, which in Beijing 2008 has become the first Brazilian athlete to win a medal in four consecutive Olympic Games will also be tactician on the new STP75 "Luna Rossa" of Patrizio Bertelli.
