CNN visits Alinghi's boatyard in Switzerland but can't see anything

CNN's MainSail show visited the Alinghi base in Switzerland to try to catch a glimpse of the mystery vessel but they came no closer to seeing the boat under construction.

MainSail presenter Shirley Robertson only got as far as the compound gates in her quest to see the vessel. As a result, we will have to wait for apporximately another month, as Ernesto Bertarelli had stated in the past that the yacht would be launched around mid July.

See? That's the right way to approach a high security compound like that: you request the interview and you get it.
Well done Shirley!

On the other hand, if you work for Oracle, Manolo Ruiz Elvira will create a spies "reckon cell", pay you 10K euros per month and provide you with all kind of spy gadgets... but you'll end up spending the night in jail.
Wrong approach, you naughty cheaters!

Hey Joe Cool, you forgot something: didn't you know that Shirley is also one of the paid Poodles from Ernesto? Ah, you didn't know that? Yes, Ernesto has in the meantime bought everything and everybody, in fact he now even owns CNN, his personal Poodle Network (sarcasm off)

I bet the panicky BOR supporters are having heart attacks now ... having spent so much money on recon and all they had to do is pick up the phone ..... dumb bells!

Heart attack from what? From seeing the DSL's on Shirley? I'll give you that. She is a looker.

As for the spying buisness, plenty of pictures of Alinghi "observers" on the water and around the Anacortes compound while the BOR90 was first launched. But BMWO didn't feel the need to call in the authorites to press charges. I wonder why???????

We will see how well recieved future Alinghi "observers" are treated when "USA" is launched.

Allinghi "observed" from the water (a public area) while BOR sends their "recons" onto private property trespassing and breaking & entering. Now, which one is the desperate team?

Quoting WetHog: "Alinghi observers on the water... while the BOR90 was first launched... but BMWO didn't feel the need to call in the authorites... I wonder why?"

So what you're saying is that there was Alinghi people watching that public launching in a public place... and you still wonder?
Well, then here you have the answer to your question:

Note: Ooops, sorry WetHog if I've offended you.
From your simple (to say the least) question I've just realized that you probably are just a kid.
Really sorry boy.
Now, turn off your pc and sail your optimist.
Come back here when you grow a decent mustache.
