Two years ago this day Alinghi won the 32nd America's Cup in Valencia
Time flies. It was exactly 2 years ago that Alinghi won the 32nd America's Cup here in Valencia and, rightly so, all sailors and fans started a fun-blasted joyful celebration. If only they knew what tremendous blunder their lawyers were about to commit by accepting a paper yacht club as Challenger of Record for the 33rd America's Cup. Eight days later, BMW Oracle issued a challenge and on the 20th of July they started their legal action in the NY State Supreme Court. The rest is history.
