“It’s a great honour and privilege to once again be official supplier of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, Challenger for the 37th America’s Cup,” said Pontus Fernstrom, Garmin EMEA marine segment director. “This is another important step in a project that started some years ago and has allowed our brand to extend its presence into the highest level of sailing worldwide, thanks to our top performing products and complete services.”
