    Luna Rossa concedes it could lose a competitive advantage over its fellow America's Cup challengers if forced to use a running back stay in the Prada Cup

    Luna Rossa concedes it could lose a competitive advantage over its fellow America's Cup challengers if forced to use a running back stay in the Prada Cup


    The Italian syndicate didn't use the back stay - which provides stability for the mast - during the World Series last month, but has been told it must run one during the challenger series.

    Luna Rossa is considering taking the matter to the Arbitration panel, but skipper Max Sirena says they are still fast with it.



    The Prada Cup begins tomorrow.
