Aleph Racing (FRA 17)
Hull number: 17
Boat owner: Hugues Lepic (FRA)
Tactician: Ed Baird (USA)
Owner Hugues Lepic joined the Class in search of a sailing challenge involving state-of-the-art racing boats in an exciting and expanding one-design class. Led by America's Cup winning helmsman Ed Baird, the French team are looking to take a fresh approach this season and mix things up as a way of maximizing their potential.
Personally, Baird is looking forward to his return to the RC44 Class. It is a boat he enjoys racing: "It sails well, it does a lot of things well. And there are a lot of active teams that sail the boat at a similar level. There are really pleasant teams and owners who enjoy very close racing – it is a great circuit."
The team has achieved a podium finish in 2012, fifth in 2013 and a fourth in 2014.
Aleph Racing did not compete at the RC44 Valletta Cup.
