Alinghi 5 apparently ready to be launched
There isn't much to this story apart for the photo. Right after the press conference at the BMW Oracle base, Alinghi's boatbuilding tent opened up and Alinghi 5 came out, apparently ready to be launched on Valencia's waters. If our information is correct and if wind conditions are favorable she should be sailing before the weekend.
