Luna Rossa launches their prototype in prep for AC37 racing scheduled through September and October 2024 in Barcelona.
With the same flair of their first AC75 three years ago in the very same location, the Italian syndicate launched its prototype (aka LEQ12), which will serve as its primary development platform. Visible components of interest were the Y-shaped foil with longer bulb and winglets on the port foil arm and a T-shaped foil with bulb and winglets as the starboard foil package. The mast was shrouded, and no sails were brought to the boat.
We didn’t know this either – LEQ12 means any yacht used for development or training that is Less than or EQual to 12m LOA.
