Our Ambassador Checco Bruni returns to flying on water

The Helmsman of Luna Rossa in the America’s Cup at the Moth world championship

Francesco Bruni, helmsman of Luna Rossa in the America’s Cup and One Ocean Foundation’s ambassador, returns to fly above water, in Malcesine on the Garda Lake, where the Moth world championship is taking place. The Moth is a small and light weighted boat that started the foiling practice in sailing.

“My goal is to enter in the top five again as in 2019, the competition level is really high: there are people like the Australians Slingsby and Ian Jensen, Paul Goodison, Dylan Fletcher and Ruggero Tita, both gold medalists at Tokyo 2020 for respectively the 49er and Nacra 17. “It will be a tough battle but I will give my best as always” declared Checco at the beginning of the event.

On behalf of One Ocean Foundation, we send a heartfelt thanks to Francesco Bruni for his commitment and for his respect fort the sea. Fair wind Checco!
