Destined for the America’s Cup – Luca Devoti & Iain Percy, Rivals on board
In Sydney, Australia, in 2000, one Italian sailor fights hard against a British competitor for the Olympic Gold medal in the Finn Class…Luca Devoti against Iain Percy. At the end, it was the younger Percy who walked away with gold around his neck. Then they were rivals, but today these two men are responsible for the sailing team on +39 Challenge; a team loaded with Olympic talent. Devoti is the sports and technical director, and nominal skipper. Percy is the helmsman and the leader on board.
