London, UK – 09 May: Italy’s enigmatic Francesco Bruni admits that he needs to learn from the mistakes that hampered his debut year on the World Match Racing Tour in 2010 as he sets out his goal of a top three finish for his Mascalzone Latino team in 2011.
Despite being one of the world’s most experienced sailors with two America’s Cup campaigns and three Olympic appearances to his name, Francesco Bruni knows past performances and reputation count for nothing on sailing’s most fiercely fought series.
“Last season we had a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times we went well through the round robins but we seized up in the quarter finals. We only competed in two semi-finals, resulting in a third in France and a fourth in Denmark which simply isn’t good enough. We need to do better this year. We expected more.”
