Bruni's comment

One day before the start of Portugal Match Race, Francesco Bruni skipper of Azzurra commented: "We are really happy to be here in Portimao, it's a beautiful place and the race course is great too. We have now completed two full days of training in very different wind conditions, always with glorious sunshine and warm temperatures, it's been great! The SW40 yachts that we will be racing with are heavy and carry a lot of sail area, so the crews will have to work hard. The guys seem very focused and determined and I have a good feeling!"
