Alinghi 5 back on the water with bigger bowsprit
According to a very brief statement on Alinghi's website, Alinghi 5, the Defending catamaran for the 33rd America's Cup, resumed her sailing activity on Sunday off the coast of Ras Al-Khaimah. Alinghi 5 spent a week in the shed and came out with some not-so-evident modifications and an evidently longer bowsprit.
Unfortunately, the one and only significant picture we could find doesn't reveal anything extraordinary.
