A special weekend with Land Rover Bar in Trieste for Barcolana #49

10 October 2017

It was a pleasure to meet the representatives of Land Rover Bar here in Trieste last weekend during the 49th Barcolana regatta. Watching the AC45F catamaran cutting the waves is always a great experience and we are proud that it boasts a bit of Triestine DNA thanks to our technical partnership. 

America's Cup is 50% design and 50% racing, as pointed out by the Land Rover Bar CEO, Martin Whitmarsh. The AC45F high-tech catamaran boasts a bit of Triestine DNA thanks to our technical partnership with Land Rover BAR. We are glad to have contributed to the design part of the challenge by providing BAR's designers with our optimization technology, and it was a particular pleasure to see the catamaran set sail in our hometown.
