Helicopter launch of Alinghi 5 delayed

You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that with conditions like the ones on the photo below Alinghi's shore crew would postpone the helicopter launch of their brand new catamaran, Alinghi 5.

Initially scheduled to take place on Wednesday morning, it will be delayed due to the unfavorable weather forecast and could take place later in the afternoon, if of course conditions get better.

Regardless of what opinion one might have about Alinghi, it is extraordinary how they have embraced the latest communication tools. This photo, and many many more, can be found on the Alinghi Friends twitpic. It's definitely worth taking a look.
