BERTELLI HONOR: Patrizio Bertelli, chief executive officer of Prada and head of the Luna Rossa Challenge, was inducted into the Herreshoff Marine Museum’s America’s Cup Hall of Fame June 29 at a gala dinner at the Marble House Mansion in Newport, R.I. Also inducted were Jonathan Wright, trimmer for five America’s Cup syndicates, and Gerard Lambert, member of four defender syndicates between 1930 and 1958.
It was a good week for Prada’s sailing crew. On July 1, the Luna Rossa Challenge came in first place overall in the fleet race, and third in the match race, for the America’s Cup World Series in Newport.
