Technically helmsman Arnaud Psarofaghis and his crew on Alinghi Red Bull Racing – SUI 8 won the GC32 Riva Cup with two races spare. In reality, given the 24 point advantage they had earned prior to the final day, the GC32 Racing Tour’s defending champions could have stayed in bed and still won by five points. Of the 16 races they sailed, Alinghi won half and finished off the podium just once. They were a class apart.
