I think he underestimates the importance of time spent in combat in the AC75s and the next closest thing is the GP50s and no swiss sailors have been involved in either of those classes. The GC32 is next after that and Allingi had a reasonably succesful GC 32 team which included a swiss podium finisher from the Moth worlds back in 2009. The other two team members are French. I think they would have a lot of wokr to do to field a competitive all swiss team. But swiss taxation is attractive for any sailor wanting to relocateBertarelli already stated during the lead up to AC36 that a nationality rule wouldn´t be a problem for them.
He said that the swiss sailing had gone a long way from the days when Alinghi first challenged for the AC and that now there are enough swiss sailors to form a national AC sailing team.
