Alinghi to race SUI-100 in the America's Cup Match
[Source: Alinghi] Alinghi is pleased to announce that the team will race SUI-100 in the 32nd America’s Cup Match. Earlier today the measurement process was completed and the team will register SUI100 as required.
SUI-100 is the latest of the four America’s Cup Class Yachts that Alinghi has built since the team was created in 2000 and it is the last ACC Yacht built for this edition of the America’s Cup. Grant Simmer, design team coordinator, comments: "We have been very pleased with SUI-100s performance since the launch on 17 March 2007, it embodies all the work that we have done in this Class since 2000 and we have chosen it because we are very confident with the performance of this boat." SUI-100 has never competed officially and the team is looking forward to the first race of the America’s Cup Match on 23 June.
