About Kai Bjorn and Team Alinghi

What does an Olympic Star crew and former pro football player do when the Games are over? This three-time Bacardi Cup winner signed on to provide some muscle for Russell Coutts and the Swiss Challenge, arriving in the cold spring of 2001 in Geneva, Switzerland, the unlikely home of what could be the most potent America's Cup challenge in 2003. Bjorn's taken a leave of absence from the family business--Performance Sailcraft (builder of the Byte, Mega Byte, and 29er)--but is keeping in touch with friends at home with this periodic letter.Kai.Bjorn@sailingworld.comAC2003 Alinghi Challenge http://www.alinghi.comPerformance Sailcraft http://wwwps.2000.ca
