Alinghi boss and founder Ernesto Bertarelli rarely does interviews. But Matt Sheahan had an exclusive meeting last season with the man who won the America’s Cup twice and started a Cup revolution in the process, and he revealed his views of the past, present and future in the Cup world.

Talking to him at his home on the shores of Lake Geneva, he speaks candidly about the highs and lows of campaigning for the world’s oldest international sporting trophy and discusses whether he has been, or could be, tempted to come back.
