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.

Thanks for the blast from the past Mr. Pierre. Truely a great race andt the finish was fabulous. Despite all the crap that has come since, at least to me, the greatness of that race has not been tarnished.

I am not so sure about time flying by. It feels so long since being in warm Valencia celebrating the best Cup ever. At least we we can look back at that amongst all the drama since. Go Alinghi!
