French multihull maestro Loick Peyron is rumoured to have a job with Alinghi

One door closes and another opens, or so goes the optimistists’ aphorism.

That sounds like it might apply to Loick Peyron, who I reported had been ousted from the Gitana Team camp.

Peyron is said to be set to move to Ailnghi should rivals BMW Oracle win the America’s Cup court case and go mutlihulling in deadly earnest.

The appeal is over and the verdict is being awaited, probably in March. Who knows if Peyron has backed a winner, but he’s surely followed the money trail, and good luck to him.
