Swiss businessman Ernesto Bertarelli has set up the team many experts pick to win the 2003 America’s Cup.

Skipper Russell Coutts and tactician Brad Butterworth will make the big sailing decisions and both will be keen to add to their reputations having pulled the strings for Team NZ last time.

If Alinghi have got the technology right, they could be the all-round package in the Hauraki Gulf.
