Bruni: the only Italian skipper at the LV Trophy La Maddalena

At last night's opening press conference of the LV Trophy, Francesco Bruni commented: "It is a great honour for us to be racing in La Maddalena. We represent the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda with great pride. It is a great honour to be racing against such an incredible line-up of skippers, and I am the only Italian here! The Azzurra team is very focused, motivated and has shown great determination both on shore and at sea."
