About This Item

UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.FINE/NFINE.No owner inscrptn but price-clipped to dw/dj.Slight creasing/crinkling bottom front edge dw/dj, no other tears.8vo,233pp includes b/w diagrams,tables and photographs. After 132 years the America's Cup has been captured.Since 1851 the New York Yacht Club has defended yacht racing's supreme trophy against all 24 challenges from Australia, Britain and Canada.But in 1983, amidst world-wide interest,Alan Bond's Australia II steered by John Bertrand beat the American defender Liberty with Dennis Conner at the helm.Here is the story of the challengers of 1983:Australian, British, Canadian, French and Italian.One of the most lavish challenges was by the Victory syndicate headed by millionaire Peter de Savary.Here are recorded the sterling efforts of himself,his crew and his back-up team.Here are the expectations,the disappointments and the rewards for sailing those exceptional racing yachts - the 12 metre class.As the Australians gained ascendancy,they had to battle not only against the British and other challengers,but also against the committee of NYYC with whom they were in acute conflict.As for the final races,no America's Cup event has remotely resembled the close sailing,place changing or excitement of this ultimate series.It is a story for sailors,sportsmen,and all who wish to read a tale more unlikely than any fiction.
