It has not taken Italy’s Luna Rossa team long to make modifications to their second AC75.
While Luna Rossa 2 was in the shed for some time before returning to the water this week, it seems that they added a small extension strip to their hull-long skeg.
Looking at images from Justin Mitchell’s video he captured on Friday (13 Nov), there appears to be an addition to the prominent skeg of the Luna Rossa 2 hull.
Similar to the quick-fix that INEOS added to their first AC75 hull to test the effect of a skeg to their scow type hull, which they were intending to incorporate into their second hull (Britannia 2).
The Italian team’s addition seems to be a minor tweak to the new hull skeg shape of their second boat.
Although decent comparisan images have yet to appear, it does seem that Luna Rossa has decided that the more radical skeg featured on the second British hull has merit.
