Alinghi, winners of the 31st and 32nd America's Cup have launched a new book, along with an iPad version that includes multimedia content. Alinghi 10 charts the history of Ernesto Bertarelli's team taking readers behind the scenes from its founding by Swiss entrepreneur Ernesto Bertarelli in 2000 to the technical challenges faced to the people behind the America’s Cup regattas, to the staging of an unforgettable America’s Cup event in Valencia in 2007. The most significant episodes are described through over 90 'Inside Views', where key people having participated in the team’s success give their insight into its journey and its rise to the top of the world's pinnacle sailing event.

The book is printed in a large-format (37x30 cm) and features ten chapters mapping the key moments of the Alinghi story. It will be sold in three different versions, each English, French, German and Italian languages. The ‘Carbon’ and ‘Silver’ editions of Alinghi 10 come in a bespoke presentation case and include an Apple iPad device loaded with an exclusive app that provides extra multimedia content.

At 384 pages with over 400 images and 30,000 words the book is a content rich celebration of Alinghi’s competitive yacht racing history. It has been constructed and compiled under the same ethos of the team and benefits from a truly premium design and high end production. It is printed on embossed silk covers, conveying the very personality of the team – a bold and unshakable attention to detail and quality.
