Video: Extreme40's for dummies
Here's a nice video the iShares people shot in Valencia, explaining the basics of the Extreme 40 catamarans. It would be very interesting to have Alinghi show us such a video in a couple of weeks when they unveil their monster multihull. According to an article that appeared in today's Le Matin, the yacht is a catamaran and not a trimaran, 115 feet long with two masts, the second small one located at the stern of the yacht. In addition, the author claims that it's a yacht for light winds, giving thus credibility to the rumor that Alinghi has chosen Dubai as the venue of the 33rd America's Cup match. We will have to wait until early July to finally have a look at the yacht, according to the author.
