judging by the picture of the gentleman's calf, I believe that is Ernesto Bertarelli's leg - hence Alinghi 5 :)

This is proof that ISAF has lost the plot.

Also that the more money you have the less respect you have for the sport of Sailing.

And finally,a sign of desperation.

A sign that there is hope for non-sailors like me (I push buttons all day) that one day we too can sail a big ass boat like Cheezilla.

What is this? Its an engine, and hence a sad sight for the sport of sailing.

This is a great opportunity for all the idiots over at SA to post stupid comments.

i don't think there is anything wrong with motors moving ballast, trimming sails , canting masts etc at this level of competition; with that being said I find it
sleazy the way Alinghi changed the rules secretly to allow just that.
Talk about winning on the water...just talk.

That's a really nice custom Olectric system. Oophs, did I say that. It's made in Australia
& not off the shelf. Good luck explaining that one like the North Sails made in USA.
