- 2 October 1978
Swiss sailor Yves Detrey joined Alinghi for the 2003 America’s Cup campaign, having previously been a crew member of the Fast 2000 team during the 2000 Louis Vuitton Cup in Auckland. However, he has been sailing with Ernesto Bertarelli for longer than that, having joined Alinghimax in 1999 to deal with technical matters on board. Together, he and Ernesto won the Bol d’Or in 2000, 2001 and 2011 before again sailing together in each of the three America’s Cup campaigns (2003, 2007 and 2010). Yves has also raced with Alinghi on the D35 Lake Geneva circuit and in the Extreme Sailing Series.
