A group of experts on the international yachting scene--Margherita Bottini, Berkeley Crane, Bruce Stannard and Bruno Troubl--recreate the atmosphere, describe the events and communicate the excitement prior to the final encounter of the 1987 America's Cup between challenger and defender, upon the waters off Western Australia. In 1983, after 132 years of uncontested predominance, the NYYC lost the America's Cup. In this new edition, Troubl describes--with the aid of Carlo Borlenghi's splendid photographs--the hard-fought races of the Louis Vuitton elimination series and, above all, the dazzling performance of Stars & Stripes and her skipper Dennis Conner who lifted the trophy from the RPYC and took it triumphantly back home to San Diego.
