Alinghi 5 at Genoa


Photo:Alinghi

First saltwater sail for Alinghi 5 The America’s Cup Defender sailed its giant catamaran, Alinghi 5, for the first time in the Mediterranean.Nice detail photo of hull deck, although at first glance I though it was a "tiny" bow, but it has pretty good volume for an eventual medium rough weather race.
But as mentioned they wanted a calm weather venue and they designed accordingly.
Firts BOR90 amas were not designed for RAK or similar flat water low winds location.
