History

Introduced in the summer of 2009.
Alinghi was the name given to the 2003 Switzerland based racing team and boat set up for the America's Cup race, by Ernesto Bertarelli. It raced under the colors of the Société Nautique de Genève . The Alinghi team won the America's Cup challenge in 2003 in Auckland New Zealand. This was the first time a team was successful in their first attempt to challenge for the cup, and marked for the first time in the 152-year history of the challenge that the America's Cup was taken to Europe. The Alinghi team successfully defended its title in 2007 at the America's Cup in Valencia, Spain.

SUI(sse?)-1 was the name of the first of the Alinghi yachts and the Wenger knife was named after this boat. The SUI-64 yacht won the 2003 America's cup. The SUI-100 won the 2007 America's cup. A special version of the Wenger Alinghi knife is carried by the Alinghi crew
