Video: Alinghi's weather microlight airplanes in action in Valencia
Alinghi just published an interesting video of their two James Bond-like microlight weather airplanes flying in Valencia. The video must have been shot these last few days and judging from the buildings in the background the shooting took place a couple of miles north of the Malvarosa beach. As one can observe from the footage, conditions are just perfect. Very flat seas, very light winds, nice sunshine, just what the doctor and Ralf Vrolijk ordered for Alinghi 5. So, sailing in Valencia in the middle of the winter can be very enjoyable and much less dangerous than what the Defender of the 33rd America's Cup has been claiming in the last couple of months.
