America's Cup: Luna Rossa back on job today

From Morning Report, 8:18 am on 1 February 2021

Luna Rossa will be back on the job today working its plan to win every race against Team UK in the America's Cup Challenger Selection Series which starts on 13 February.

Sunday was the first time the Italian sailing team's shore crew had downed tools since they arrived in Auckland in October.

The rest day was a reward for comfortably winning the semi-finals 4-nil and ending any possible fairytale finish for American Magic.

The Americans didn't win a race in the challenger series - before or after their dramatic capsize - and limped out of the regatta over the weekend with mechanical problems on their repaired boat.
