A Must Read: The Alinghi Special, By Skippers Mag.


Alinghi and Skippers magazine, the leading yachting title in Switzerland have compiled an Alinghi Special Edition. It portfolios an exclusive interview with Alinghi syndicate head Ernesto Bertarelli and up-close features on some of the personalities behind the winning team. The publication also has everything you need to know about the Defender of the America’s Cup and the new racing format. Plus an in-depth guide to Valencia, home of the 32nd America’s Cup with hotel listings, restaurants, what to see and where to go.

100,400 copies of this special 116 page edition will be in circulation from the 1 June, when 17,000 issues hit the news stands in Switzerland, they will also be on sale in all shops that stock Alinghi merchandising and at the Alinghi shop in Geneva airport. The Alinghi Special will also be available in Spain at the Alinghi shop in the Main Base at the start of Act 4 on the 15 June. The Special Edition reflects Alinghi’s multi-cultural approach and is written in five languages: English, French, German, Spanish and Italian, it is available to order online at

Brice Lechevalier, editor of Skippers magazine comments on a successful collaboration: “As an Alinghi fan from the start, Skippers has followed the team adventures closely, now with the new racing format and a new home for the America’s Cup, we wanted to provide a comprehensive and in-depth guide. Today it is easy to jump on a flight from Switzerland to Valencia and with this Alinghi Special, you can read-up on the Defender of the America’s Cup, the Cup itself and the host city – we want the experience to be one of learning but also of pleasure.”

Brad Butterworth, Vice President of Alinghi and tactician comments on the launch: “We are very happy that the leading yachting magazine in Switzerland is cooperating with us in bringing the Alinghi world closer to our fans. To live up to our multi-cultural commitments reflected by our team members of 19 different nationalities, we have chosen to publish this special edition in five different languages and look forward to your feedback!”

Skippers and Alinghi intend to make this a regular publication, so look out for Issue 2 in 2006 and another for 2007.
