Day of Reckoning
As predicted weeks ago by diligent AC Anarchists, Alinghi’s new boat is now reliably said to be a scaled-up version of their ultra-fast “Le Black” with some specialized new features. Insiders have leaked the news that the Swiss Cup boat is incredibly light, with stays holding the flimsy structure together and powered winches that change the beam of the boat to suit the exact wind speed expected in each race.
Tomorrow, a group of hand-picked journalists will head to Lake Geneva to get the first pseudo-public glimpse of the beast, and regardless of Bertarelli swearing them to secrecy for a few days, there is little doubt that the reality of the monster will make its way to the general public. The quest to figure out what is behind the curtain has been extremely fun, and it’s going to be very interesting to see which anarchist was the closest to the true form, size, and rig on the Cheezilla, and we’ve got some SA swag for that Anarchist. Keep your fingers crossed, you obsessed bastards.
