Unveiling Day in Valencia

I thought this picture marked the day well! This was a keel skirt in the skip outside the Alinghi base. As of now, teams are not allowed to cover their boats or appendages so it was an interesting day going around all the bases to see what each team had done. There was a surprising variation to the same fundamental design problem, but you have to wonder what the big teams will change over the coming days/weeks. Many teams had their boats back in the yard overnight and rig down.... While you can't skirt again, you won't have members of other teams walking around your boat only meters away again either.

I won't post a selection of my pics here, as there are loads of good websites out there that have already posted the same shots:
