    Luna Rossa co-helmsman Francesco Bruni's expecting an epic duel with American Magic in the Prada Cup Challenger semi final series starting Friday


    The Italians are smarting from losing all three races to INEOS Team UK in round robin but insist they are getting faster with every race.

    American Magic are frantically rebuilding Patriot after capsizing and almost sinking eight days ago.

    They hope to relaunch on Wednesday.

    Bruni expects there will be little between the two boats.
