Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker says lining up against Luna Rossa this week "definitely lifts the intensity." The Kiwis looked fast in the training session against their Italian counterpart. Teammate Joey Allen was even more effusive: "Exciting. Very cool. It's what the guys have been training for. Amazing boats. It's gonna get good!"
