Alinghi SUI-100  winner of the AC 2007
After SUI-100 won the AC 2007 many expected that she carries the last IACC sail number, racing in an America’s Cup. Ernesto Bertarelli proposed a new mono-hull class AC90 which was not enthusiastically accepted. The reason might be that the not so very rich teams were depending on the second-hand boats market to start in the Cup at acceptable costs. But the situation changed after the AC 2010 in favour of catamarans anyhow. No. 101 was given to the German Racing Team, as they had finished a new mould, but they stopped the construction very soon afterwards. Many of the 100 IACC yachts were just trial boats or  have not been finished as SLO-4/1992. Number 13 was not issued to a team.

No. 69 has been refused by the British challengers as a sexism symbol, but was accepted by the French team without any problem.
The number stays with the yachts, but the country codes change with a new registration. ITA-48 became RSA-48 when it was sold to Shosholoza
