Max Sirena

A lifetime in the America's Cup

Max Sirena

Max is currently participating in the America’s Cup for the seventh time. Among these he counts a winning 33rd edition with BMW Oracle Racing – where he was responsible for the mast wing project – and victory in the 35th with Emirates Team New Zealand in the Bermuda edition in 2017. Max was also the skipper of the Extreme 40 Luna Rossa and winner of the Extreme Sailing Series championship in 2011.

He participated with the Luna Rossa team in the challenges of 2000, where they won the Louis Vuitton Cup, and 2003 and 2007 in the role of mid-bowman. He then became Skipper and Team Director of Luna Rossa in the campaign for the 34th America’s Cup, held in San Francisco in 2013.

Today, again as Skipper and Team Director, he is leading the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team in the challenge for the 36th America’s Cup in Auckland in 2021. The values that connect Max Sirena to the One Ocean Foundation are the same ones that unite the foundation with the Luna Rossa Sailing Team: sport and a culture of sustainability.
