Photographer's Note

The Alinghi won the 32nd America’s Cup boat competition on the waters off Valencia. The Swiss Defender won its fourth consecutive race in dramatic fashion, to win the Match 5-2.

Today, the Alinghi landed at Geneva airport amid much national celebration on a day that coincides with the 150th anniversary of the creation of America’s Cup competition. From Geneva airport the sailors travelled to the Société Nautique de Genève (SNG) with the America’s Cup trophy, returning it to the Defending Yacht Club for the second time. The America’s Cup will continue on to Zurich on the 10 July, then Bern on the 12 July, culminating in Lugano on the 14 July.
