Attached you will find some pictures of the cradle boat. Luna was born on the 1st of May, and I finished it in mid-April. The Alinghi logos have been offered by the Alinghi (Americas Cup) Team, as she was born the right year. In 2007, she’ll realize that she owns the smallest Alinghi defender — putting them early on the right path helps a lot! As this project was my first one, in fact the first time I did something out of wood with my hands, I had a few difficulties to understand how to use and hold some tools. But I learned something and that’s fine. And the parents were delighted, so what else could you ask for?
