AC Hall of Fame New Members: Bertelli, Wright and Lambert
Owner of the Luna Rossa Challenge and the first Italian to ever be inducted into the Hall of Fame, Patrizio Bertelli spoke of his true pride in joining the other members.
“One of the reasons I am happy to challenge again for the America’s Cup is because of a message sent to me by Peter Blake after our first challenge in New Zealand in 2000. He said that it was really important to challenge, and to continue to challenge, and not to stop challenging.”
“We really remember what Peter Blake said and that is why we are challenging for the fourth time now. We have not changed from the first challenge to the fourth. We have not changed our willingness to do our best and we are challenging with the same spirit we had at the beginning.”
